Kit Knotts photos: I received my original plants from Rich Sacher, American Aquatic Gardens, an acknowledged expert in the identification of waterlilies, in 1999 and 2001 and I have grown it continuously from tuber since that time.

Craig Presnell photos: I received my 'Missouri' from John Loggins, Lone Star Aquatics, an acknowledged expert in the identification of waterlilies.

Note: 'Missouri' is known for its large size and the "crepey" texture of the flower petals. Seedlings or unknown whites are frequently sold or traded as the true cultivar.
