Nymphaea marliacea 'Chromatella'

These aquatic plants are prized for their star-shaped, semi-double flowers which bloom in many colors. Flowers and large leaves float on or rise just above the surface of water. Need full sun to bring out their gorgeous blooms. Plant easy-to-grow, hardy varieties where freezing winters kill the tender tropical varieties. Plant rhizomes on the surface of soil, 8 to 12 inches below the waterline, in a pond or container.
Nymphaea marliacea
Cup-shaped, partly double, lemon yellow flowers 6 to 8 inches across contrast nicely with the deep olive green leaves streaked with bronze and maroon. Good for pools or tubs, it also blooms well in partial shade. One of the oldest and most reliable bloomers, it was given an Award of Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society of England.
