What is the "minimum" depth the water lilies have to be in, to survive the winter?

I push mine down to about 18 inches. I have a few I have never moved and they seem to survive. But to be safe I sink mine.

Go by how deep your pond ice freezes.

Unfortunately, my answers on a topic like this won’t be helpful — I leave mine at their current depth (not sure, maybe 18” or 2’), as it doesn’t get cold enough here for the water to freeze.
