    Very nice, Zach. I have some in my little pond too but I tend to let them get choked out by more aggressive plants. They are always a joy.
    When the unopened buds emerge from the water they remind me of a turtle's head poking out of the water.

    Thanks! I agree Kelly they remind me if turtles as well! Once it gets really hot there is an almost black clone in there but it only blooms when the temps hit the 80-90s consistently.

    Zach, please post pics of that black one if/ when it blooms! I'd love to see it.
