Water lilies
We recently went to Alton towers, near the entrance in a man made pond were some really large water Lillies, the pads had a rim around them, I haven't been able to find them in the Internet. Does anybody know whether you can buy them here and how hardy they are likely to be and what they are called.



From your description it sounds as though you need to contact Pedro's Garden Center in Manaus, Brazil.
Alternatively you could drop an e-mail to Alton Towers.

they are supposed to be able to take the weight of a person!
