Helvola Hardy Water Lily

Product Description

Small, slightly fragrant, star-shaped, pale yellow flowers up to 7cm (3in) across from June to September. This award-winning pygmy water lily will happily grow in as little as 15cm (6in) of water and are perfect candidates for a small pond or tub in a sheltered sunny site. The shade cast by the foliage also helps check the spread of algae. Hardy to zones 4-11.
