Water lily icon 'Chromatella' Hardy Water Lily

'Chromatella' Hardy Water Lily
Item #: 10-3025

Nymphaea x marliacea 'Chromatella' is one of the better yellow varieties. In 1895, 'Chromatella' was hybridized by the famous botnanist M. Marliac who received the Award of Merit by the Royal Horticulture Society. It is considered one of the oldest and most dependable of the hardy water lilies today

The 6" blossoms sit on the water's surface like a golden cup. The flower is a rich creamy yellow with a pleasant fragrance.

Benefits. The perennial 'Chromatella' can be grown in tubs, deck ponds, or backyard water gardens. It is fragrant and brightens up your water display. Bees use the pads to land and access water to drink. The pads shade the water to help prevent algal growth.

Growth Conditions. Full sun with more than 6 hrs of sunlight.

Size: Flowers are 3-6" forming a cup that is 4"-5" diameter. They have 7 to 20 petals or rays.

About Tricker's
Store Hours
America's Oldest Water Garden Specialist established in 1892
In the later 1920s and 1930s Tricker delivered aquatics locally with trucks to customers. This practice is still done today.

William Tricker, Inc.® is a leading grower of aquatic plants, supplier of water garden products and aquarium supplies. Our aquatic greenhouses have produced superior plants for over a century. Customers have been receiving quality aquativ plants and animals that make water gardening easy and fun to do. Purchase with confidence at Tricker's.

William Tricker (born 1853) started his commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's when he started hybridizing water lilies and studied what helps their growth. The shape, colors and hardiness of his beautiful aquatic plants have withstood the test of time.

In the early 1890's, he earned a reputation as a leader in aquatic lifeforms from hybridiing many water lilies. His water lily nursery and company, in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, was passed down tthrough his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker mail-order catalog was mailed to customers across the nation, and we still do, today.
