This is a pretty aquatic rafting plant, lance shaped leaves are heavily toothed. It roots at the edge of the pond and grows out across the water in a floating raft, providing cover and habitat for pond life. Attractive red 'rose-shaped' flowers are produced in mid summer. Height to 30 cm. Likes moving water and does well in a stream or on a waterfall.
