Water gardens and water garden plants!

Last week in my travels I stopped at this water garden center.  Paradise Water Gardens is a large supplier of all things water garden related.  They have a very large mail order catalog and  they do have display gardens.  I think most of their business must be through mail order and web site as the display gardens, while extensive, have  a  utilitarian appearance.

Water hyacinth!

I never realized how orchid like the flowers of the water hyacinth appear with that delicate veining and splotch of yellow!  How many of you have water gardens?
