Watergarden Paradise

Aquatic Nursery

Small & Miniature Hardy Waterlilies

These waterlilies are suitable for small tubs in balcony/rooftop gardens, small ponds/water features and any shallower water areas. They are smaller in leaf spread, hence, coverage is less when compared with a standard size water lily. Growth tip of the plant could be submerged between 15cms to 30cms below the water surface.

Planting instructions is available for download here. Don't forget to include fertiliser tablets in your plantings.
