flowers that usually last only a day, grace this plant with bluish to
lilac blooms marked with yellow peacock center eyes on 6 in. spikes at
the center of a rosette of glossy green, bulbous leaves. Air
pockets in the bulbous areas keep the plant afloat. Long thick
black roots trail to provide spawning and hiding places for fish.
Another benefit is the nutrient absorbing qualities of the plant.
Good for placement in the pond early as possible to get ahead of the
algae. Typical to tropicals it requires heat and sunlight to
flourish and bloom. A vigorous reproducer, you will need to thin
out older plants. Will not winter over in most climates unless brought
indoors to ample light and warm water above 70 degrees.
