Pygmy Helvola water lily

Pygmy Helvola water lily (N. ‘ Pygmaea Helvola’) This is a very small water lily, a true miniature  with wonderful yellow flowers. Probably the most popular dwarf water lily and certainly the smallest yellow. It is thus an ideal lily for a tub or small pool or can be grown on the shallower marginal shelf of a pond.  This lily is suitable for the smallest of spaces making it ideal if you are trying to create a wildlife habitat in a small area.

  • If not repotting yearly we suggest feeding occasionally with Growth Balls pushed into the soil below the tuber.
  • Spread :- 24in (60 cm)
  • Planting Depth :- 6 to 9 in (15-22 cm) of water above soil level.
  • Position in full sun in still water.
