I have not grown this personally, but I work at Lilypons Water Gardens. In my professional opinion, this is the most beautiful, unique waterlily I have ever seen. Softball sized flowers with a very high petal count, the tip of each petal curling back toward the center of the blossom, and while not the most profuse bloomer, in the right conditions it's still reliable. On top of that, it smells fabulous! It is not for beginners -- it needs full sun, a lot of space, and some pampering occasionally -- but it's absolutely worth it, a true collector's item.
