Nice pics! Few plants better illustrate the concept that one man's weed is another man's wildflower than that one.
Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
So pretty! It makes them even prettier considering that growing them here in the NW US takes a bit of doing.

Cool; too bad they're invasive. I see them on the levy near my home... they're taking over, but not as fast as duckweed
Nice flowers! I've seen the plants on many occasions, but never the flowers before. A buddy of mine used to over winter a number of them in his greenhouse. Eventually, heating costs got too great so he closed the gh down. If I'm recalling correctly, he still managed to overwinter a few plants indoors in a lighted fish tank to "seed" his outdoor pond come warm weather.

A beautiful, yet highly invasive flower? Sounds like something I'm growing!
Those are some amazing blossoms! You make me want to grow something other than lily pads in my pond.
Water hyacinth are great in ponds! I have them in mine. Soaks up nutrients like nobody's business. And with those flowers who can resist them! They will grow in lower light than lilies, too.
