I enjoyed this in my pond. It's picotee edge is vibrant enough to get noticed, but the blossom as a whole was able to blend in with my hardy waterlilies rather than ourshine them. Blossom-wise, it did well, but still underperformed 'Colorado' in my pond. In full sun, I think that would have been a different story. A good one to try if you're looking for a bloom that's classy and unique.
