Speaker Yann Mumber


  • All things aquatic from individual plant cultivars and container gardens to large ponds. Effective display and cultivation. Lotus is his specialty.
  • Presentation languages French and English. May consider online presentations.


Yann Mumber purchased his first water lily when he was just eight years old and has since become recognized as an expert on both water lily and lotus production.

After completing his engineering degree in specialized horticultural production, Yann founded Le Jardin de Nelumbo in 2009, an aquatic plant nursery in Martigues, France.

He is co-author with Gérard Malinvaud of a successful book on lotus that was published by Ulmer in 2017.
