Kenneth landon / director, international waterlily collection
"we're here in the world for a short time and i like to do things that are positive for people.
The little kids that come in and all the big people that come in to see them and they look at something that they've never seen before.
Like the great big victoria leaves. And they say man that is really something. The victoria that we've grown this year is the only one of it's kind in north america."
