Water poppy

Has anyone ever grown this plant, whether in an aquarium, whiskey barrel, outdoor pond, or anywhere else?

I'm looking for a plant that has a water lily look and can grow in water about a foot deep. Most of the dwarf lilies have bigger leaves than I would prefer.

I can't find a whole lot of information about water poppy other than that they like shallow water and rich soil. I'm curious as to how much light they need, and whether they are the sort of plant that requires a dormant period.
