Mine isn't flowering yet. Wonder whether that has something to do with the unfortunate fact that there's not toooooo much water in the pond.

As they are a marginal they only need damp roots to flourish so maybe their roots aren't deep enough in lake Placido :)

Claude Monet reckoned he could paint them but not as good as I can photo them
