Large water lily with pads from 14 to 20 cm in diameter, and 12 cm flowers.
Classic variety. Without a doubt, the world's most famous water lily. 'Chromatella' was Latour-Marliac's first big success, and to this day what people mean when they talk about yellow water lilies is this lily (no yellow water lily has ever grown naturally in the wild in Europe). It has large cup-shaped yellow flowers, which seem to bloom non-stop, and which sit over heavily mottled pads. It is easy to care for, and rarely disappoints.
Today, they grow this lily for export by the tens of thousands in China, Thailand and elsewhere, but only we grow and sell it the way Monsieur Latour-Marliac did.
Plant one per 14 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.
