(Latour-Marliac, c. 1921)
Warning: Last items in stock!
Large water lily with pads from 16 to 20 cm in diameter, and 14 cm flowers.
'Amabilis' was first offered for sale in the 1922 catalogue and shares its pedigree with some illustrious cousins: 'Tulipformis' (currently priceless) and 'Madame Julien Chifflot'. Unlike these cousins, though, it is easy to multiply, and therefore was a popular export during the interwar period. It has unusual geometric star-shaped flowers, will do well in deep water, and is a profuse bloomer.
Plant one per 20 litre planting container at a depth of 40 to 100 cm in order to have approximately one square metre of surface coverage after a year or two.
