More info

Mexicana is a subtropical species from North America that will tolerate cold winters, but it does best in southern European climates. It is a plant of great significance, as it was a parent of most of Latour-Marliac's early yellow and copper crosses. Monet purchased it for Giverny when it was still called Flava. The flowers are the most deep and pure yellow of all the yellow water lilies, but it's not a profuse bloomer. The leaves are mottled and serrated and are themselves attractive. It's an excellent and original choice for small ponds and container water gardens.

Plant one per 14 litre planting container at a depth of 10 to 40 cm in order to have approximately one square metre of surface coverage after a year or two.
