Pygmy Water-lily

On July 14 2004 a new location for Pygmy Waterlily, Nymphaea tetragona, was discovered in the Columbia wetlands near Brisco, BC.  The new record is the most southerly for British Columbia. This circumboreal lily is blue listed in BC and is rare over most of its range except in Alaska. The Illustrated Flora of British Columbia states that it is found in lakes, ponds and slow-moving streams in the lowland and montane zones.  E-Flora BC shows the previous known distribution of Nymphaea tetragona in British Columbia. The ones in central BC are just north of Prince George approximately 700 km north of this new observation.

Description

A new location for Pygmy Waterlily, was discovered in 2004 in the Columbia wetlands near Brisco. The new record is the most southerly for British Columbia. This circumboreal lily is blue listed in BC and is rare over most of its range except in Alaska.

More plants that when I first observed in 2004. They seem to grow in the channels rather that out in the open wetlands. Growing near the yellow pond lilies
