Pygmy Lilies Suitable for small and/or shallow ponds

These are very tiny and only suitable for shallow containers in full sun with little or no competition. Plant with water 10-20cm above the crown and use 2 litre baskets. Not recommended for beginners as they are weak and can be quite tricky. For small garden ponds you would almost certainly be better advised to choose a Small lily.

Typically, pygmy lilies do not become available until the water has warmed up in late May.
