Overview

Developed in 1905 by Joseph B.L. Marliac, the Chrysantha water lily is a hardy, changeable lily. This lily's petals are creamy-yellow, blushed with orange that deepens in color each day, and number between 16 and 19 to each flower. When mature, it has an upright rhizome and 3 to 4 inch, cup-shaped flowers.

An excellent bloomer, the Chrysantha is free blooming outside of hot regions. The mottled purple leaves are a striking contrast to the bloom. Leaves measure 6-1/2 inches by 5-1/2 inches.

The Chrysantha is often mislabeled 'Graziella' or 'Paul Hariot' (which has larger blooms and is subject to crown rot). Plant in a 2-gallon or larger pot in 6-18 inches of water. This lily has a spread of 2 to 3 feet. Zones 4-11.

Approximate Purchase Size: 8" to 16"
