What is a Lily Pad? (Glad you asked!)
Lily Pads: Although these plants appear to be floating with ease, there is actually a lot going on beneath the placid surface. Even some of the most common facts about lily pads are quite surprising.
🌺Parts of the Water Lily Plant:The lily pad you see floating on top of the water is only one part of a water lily (Nymphaeaceae spp.) plant. Characteristically round, flat and waxy, a lily pad is simply a leaf with the ability to repel moisture from its surface. Though lily pads appear as if they are simply floating atop the water, they are actually attached to a stem that may extend many feet down to the bottom of a pond or lake, where the plant is rooted.
🌺What Lies BeneathThe underside of a lily pad looks vastly different than the top. A system of stems and tubes run underneath the lily pad. These tubes, which are connected to openings called stomas in the top of the leaves, help the pad float and collect oxygen through the stoma. This oxygen is transferred to the water lily's stem and down to the plant's roots. Up to two liters of air a day are sent from the top of the lily to its roots through this mechanism. The bottoms of lily pads may also be a dark purple color in sharp contrast to the green tip surface—this dark coloration helps the leaves absorb the sunlight required for photosynthesis.
🌺Invasive PotentialWater lilies reproduce both by way of seeds and by the spreading of their tenacious roots, or rhizomes. Though lily pads spread relatively slowly, they can eventually take over entire shorelines and are considered invasive in some areas. Water lilies and their surface lily pads can blanket areas of water as deep as six feet. A single rhizome can reproduce and grow to cover an area 15 feet in diameter in as little as 15 years.
