Chalily was established in Spring 2011 with the dream of celebrating water in the garden. The owners Joe & Tonya named the store after their two children Charles and Lily, Chalily. Much like their children, the store continues to grow every year. Since 2011 Chalily has expanded exponentially! We now offer plants directly from our own greenhouse in St.Louis.
Meet Joe Summers
A Horticulturist by trade, Joe developed a love for water gardens while working for the Missouri Botanical Garden, where his focus was the giant Victoria Water Lilies. While there, he produced the only hybrid Victoria in Missouri Botanical Garden history, and aptly named it Victoria ‘Adventure’. His studies have also taken him to the Amazon Rainforest, where he continued to study the art and practice of garden cultivation and management.
Prior to establishing Chalily, Joe served as the Vice President of Anjon Manufacturing, a national company which produces pond liner, pumps, and filtration units. Joe served 3 terms as President of the St. Louis Water Garden Society. He also sits on the board of directors for World Water Lily and Water Garden Association. The Chalily team loves being YOUR personal expert on all things water in the garden.
