Medium-sized water lily with pads from 12 to 15 cm in diameter, and 10 cm flowers.
'Atropurpurea' is one of the most striking reds created by Latour-Marliac, for the tone of red, but also for the saucer-shaped flowers that seem to float on the water's surface. This variety was a hit overseas in the years after it was introduced, and it's still commonly found for sale in American water lily nurseries.
Plant one per 14 or 20 litre planting container at a depth of 20 to 60 cm in order to have approximately one square metre of surface coverage after a year or two.
