This is a must have for waterlily lovers. Everyone loves it. You can't go wrong with Albert Greenberg. It's very floriferous. I have nothing bad to say about this waterlily except that it is a tropical which means it will go dormant if your climate isn't warm enough.

Fragrant, large flowers. A strong, steady bloomer. Pads are streaked. Beautiful two toned blooms.

This tropical water lily is an excellent bloomer. Yellowish/lavender flowers have orange-pink tips with 20 petals. Leaves are green with heavy purple blotches & wavy edges.
