See Nymphaea minuta. A new species that will change the waterlily industry in the coming years. It is a pygmy lily. It will grow and thrive in shade. Most importantly it is passing these characteristics into new crosses that are enabling new never before seen small lilies. People who do not have room for any size pond will be able to grow a waterlily in a tub container with ease in the near future.
