I think they are like a bit regal and beautiful queens of swamp. I have seen them in wetland areas and also in residential or park setting as well. Their cluster of leaves are gigantic (sort of) and need extra space to grow handsomely. Their flowers are so delicate looking and eye catching white and red purple colors. Even after peaking and colors fading to yellow and brown, they seem to maintain different kind of beauty and dignity. My humble opinion.
