I brought this plant today at my lfs and I asked him "is this a lotus" he replied "No its a arrowhead" anyhow he prolly made that up.To me it looks like Nymphaea glandulifera.
What do you guys think?

They're great plants but do get big. The translucent leaves look great IMHO.

The genus name is Nuphar. Over here most of the plants sold are Nuphar japonica but I believe in the States you often have another species, possibly a native one. I can't remember that one's name I'm afraid!
