Uses Notes:  Great plants for use as the centrepiece in large combinations, they also do very well grown alone in containers.  They are fantastic waterscaping and landscape plants and lend a tropical feel to gardens or ponds in any locale.

Maintenance Notes:  While deadheading is not necessary to keep them blooming all summer, removing seed pods will likely improve appearance. In containers an application of controlled release fertilzer should be sufficient for the season, but supplementing with a water soluble plant food starting mid-summer can keep them performing at their best. In landscapes, the controlled release application at planting should be enough to last all summer. In an aquatic setting they are most successful if planted bare root, anchored securely by surrounding rockery and will feed of nutrients in the water table. Water needs are simple and the plants are quite adaptable, even tolerating standing water for short periods of time.  They can also take periods of relatively dry soil, although consistent moisture will produce the very best plants.
