Our Pink Dwarf Water Lily, Nymphae sp., is an excellent cover plant for aquatic carnivores such as Aldrovanda and Bladderworts. It's small size lends well to growing in a small aquarium or other confined spaces. Flowers emerge pink and mature to a deep pink-red color with bright orange stamens. The flowers are long lasting. Leaves are about 2" round and dark green to reddish green to brown in full sunlight. It is a hardy water lily and dormancy is required. It is a prolific easy grower.
