The water lily season is nearing its end, but there is no reason to wait for spring. Just as there is the Burpee's seed catalogue for the home gardener, there are water garden catalogues for the water lily enthusiast to ponder over during the winter months. Here are several water gardens that offer mail-order service to California:
