2024 Victoria Seed Request Form is Open

Notification to all members:  
This will be the last year for the Victoria Conservancy, and the last year the society will offer seeds of Victoria.  The Board is currently working on creating a new, more inclusive program for sharing plants, seeds, and time-sensitive water gardening information to all active members until February 23, 2024. This self-initiated member-to-member exchange program will allow members to actively share resources with other like-minded individuals.
More information will be coming soon about this new membership benefit.

Please read the Victoria Seed Distribution page for updated information on international shipping rates.


The mission of the International Waterlily and Water Gardening Society (IWGS) is furtherance of all aspects of water gardens and their associated plants. As an organization we support and promote education, research, and conservation in these areas.

The genus Victoria is of special interest to the IWGS because of its uniqueness and use by botanic gardens and public institutions in capturing public interest in aquatic plants.

The purpose of the Victoria Conservancy is to distribute seed and serve as an information resource for growing these fascinating plants.  The  Conservancy is led by the IWGS Board of Directors and run by Board members and community partners.

Each year the Victoria Conservancy distributes a limited number of Victoria seed to IWGS members in good standing who make a qualified request within the noted time frame and cover shipping and handling expenses as directed.
