Description

Snowy white petals surround the bright yellow receptacle surmounted by frilly golden orange stamens. This cultivar matures at a large size and will require a large aquatic area to flower well. Full sun and the use of mesh screen to protect the rhizomes from nutria are part of the recipe for success.
