Pygmy Alba water lily (Nymphaea Tetragona Alba) This miniature water lily has delicately scented pure white star-shaped flowers. A very small variety, it is suitable for tub gardens and small ponds.

  • If in a shallow pond that is likely to freeze solid in winter, remove to greenhouse for protection.
  • Planting depth 30-60 cm (12-24in).
  • Growth spread 45-60 cm (18-24in).
  • We would recommend a planting basket of at least 11cm across.
  • Water lilies are heavy feeders and benefit from a slow release fertilizer specially prepared for aquatic plants such as Growth Balls which can simply be pushed into the soil.
  • Product Code: NW125
  • We ship all lilies bare root, this means that we wash the soil off before packing plants. During the summer months we may need to trim some of the foliage back for shipping.
