    They need lots of full sun. And they also can't be anywhere where fish will eat them. Even the tiniest of goldfish will eventually eat all the roots out. They grow crazy fast on top of running water.

    I actually had the raccoons do that just last night even to my hyacinth. They like to bite parts of it off. Leave half of this or that. Drag them all over the yard.

    Raccoons. They tear up all my pond plants. Rip apart my lilies. I hate the things.
