Flowers occur when grown emersed, and it is often necessary to examine the flowers in order to ascertain the exact species. Grown aquatic (submersed) some species will not usually flower.
When I wrote the profile, I did a fair bit of digging through botanical texts to try and find the correct species name; but I can't guarantee it. Common names are not usually very helpful, as they may only be "common" to the person using them.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
