With nearly 2 acres of pools and ponds, the Garden teems with waterlilies, lotuses, and other aquatic species on display year-round. The collection includes Victoria amazonica, the world’s largest waterlily, as well as Nymphaea thermarum, the world’s smallest. The Garden has acquired waterlilies from some of the industry’s top hybridizers and has hosted the International Waterlily and Water Gardening Society’s New Waterlily Competition for several years. The Water Garden is our primary display area, with additional pools in the Lea Asian Garden, Kapnick Brazilian Garden, by the Chabraja Visitor Center, and in the Grove, where we grow and display the New Waterlily Competition contenders.
