Caldesia parnassifolia has only one natural site in Germany in a pond of the Charlottenhofer Weihergebiet in Upper Palatinate(Bavaria). Also in surrounding countries only few sites are left. My photos were taken in the Botanical Garden of the University of Regensburg, but too late in the year when flower was almost over.
