Chromatella Water Lily

Nymphea xmarliacea / marliacea 'Chromatella' syn 'Golden Cup'


The mottled, olive-green leaves of this majestic water lily provide the perfect setting for its primrose-yellow blooms, which have bright golden stamens. Will bloom in part-shade. 

This lily is pre-planted into a 3L pot - ready to place straight into your pond.

This plant will die back to its basket for winter, and begin growing again in the spring. Trim off brown stems/leaves in the autumn to tidy it up. To encourage growth in the spring of young lily plants, raise them to shallower water by placing on a shelf or positioning an upturned spare basket underneath (approx. 30cm from basket rim to water surface). This helps sunlight reach the crown of the lily so it has more energy to send the initial leaves to the surface. 

Water lilies require still water to flourish, so avoid placing near a waterfall or fountain.

The recommended depth in water is calculated as the distance between the top of the basket and the water surface. Therefore "0" would be the basket rim at the water surface.
