The Missouri Botanical Garden in St.Louis has a wonderful display of these lillies every summer. They have been a crowd pleaser since Victorian times when Mr. Henry Shaw developed his garden for the public. There is a famous picture of a young woman standing on one of the large leaves in the lilly pond. In winter they are removed for storage.
Shaw's Garden has developed and hybridized many other water lillies which are also in bloom at this this time of year.
