|These aquatic plants are prized for their star-shaped, semi-double flowers which bloom in many colors. Flowers and large leaves float on or rise just above the surface of water. Need full sun to bring out their gorgeous blooms. Plant easy-to-grow, hardy varieties where freezing winters kill the tender tropical varieties. Plant rhizomes on the surface of soil, 8 to 12 inches below the waterline, in a pond or container.
Its 2-inch-wide flowers with yellow stamens have a spicy fragrance. Oval to arrow-shaped leaves are spreckled with chocolate markings. Plant 6 inches deep in tubs and aquariums.
