Cute, bright, and petite. The little 2" flowers are hot pink with white on the edges, and it only covers and area about 1 1/2' around. It worked nicely in my pond, but I gave it away a few years back to get some other plants for my marginals shelf. It doesn't mind the heat, either. Great for patios, I'd say, but it was dwarfed in my pond.
