Generally the dwarf lilies will only look good in container ponds or very small ponds less than a metre square, unless you want to plant them in small groups, as they’re very delicate with thin stems, small leaves and are slow growing. The small/miniatures will be fine in small ponds up to a couple of square metres, and the large would be fine in medium sized ponds of 5 square metres or more, although the vigorous cultivars like the Alba and Gladstoniana may need splitting after a few years.
