Thanks guys. The big red one is a red tiger lotus of the lily family. The little one behind it is alternanthera reineckii pink. If you trim the lotus of big leaves such as on the top, I have read one can train it to stay lower and not to grow such gigantic leaves. Since this is a re-emerging one from a bulb whose first growth was rotted off by a stem fungus some months ago, I elected to let it go all out for the time being. But trimming will happen fairly soon. bob
