Does anyone have any true dwarf water lily's? I need two or three for some tub gardens I'm working on. The tropical and hardies keep out growing them.

Hey Larkin. I have Little Champion,small red hardy. It's doing well in a 100 gal tub. I can't load pics today for some reason. If you can make it here for the Koi and water garden club meeting in July I'll have one started for you.

If you ever have extras, I would pay you for some...............I have some small ponds that could use a tiny lily.

I have small water lilys that bloom yellow, had them since 1991, and I think they are dwarf cause they are so small compared to the tropical lillys. I don't think I can ship it to the states cause it may not cross the border.... ?

Colleen you need to go down to the southern border and someone from the Montana side here will be waiting. You just set down a big bag and leave. They pick it up................................and
So it's not worth a try?

Thanks Gary, I am planning on being there the end of the month! Not looking for anything specific, just a small lily for a tub Garden project.

Helvola is a dwarf, blooms about 1" wide. There aren't many truly small, dwarf waterlilies out there, fewer among the tropical waterlilies

It has very distinctive marbling on the little pads, a very nice touch...

I like those, Andy what is the small dwarf lily that the flowers change colors each day? I had one years ago and lost it and I would really like to find another.
