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.
