The red water lily opened this morning

It's a beauty. I can't remember the name. I have it posted in a pond forum, but he site is down at the moment so I can't go back and see what it is. Black Queen or something like that.
A pickerel weed pic and a pic of my canna lily. No wonder the poor thing hasn't grown much this year. Bentley likes to gnaw on it. I've got one flower off the poor thing all season.

That lily is breathtaking, clm! Thanks for posting it. I don't think I've ever seen a red water lily before.

Your canna is in the same boat as my sunflowers. I planted 8 and thought the rabbits were eating them...until I caught Brier in the act!
