     Flowering pond plants are known for accentuating a water garden, giving it more color. Most of the pond plants have a darker saturation defined in the flower. They are most commonly known to provide a unique touch apart from the typical, "green grass look". The pond plants we sell also come in a variety of heights, for more information regarding the height of a particular pond plant, please read the details below.

     These flowering pond plants require full soil to grow, top soil mixed with a clay-based soil is preferred. The clay-based soil is added to increase the soil's overall density. The pond plants we sell have anchor roots which require a more dense soil in order to latch on. These pond plants are found in marsh/swamp areas which means they don't require full sunlight, and that they shouldn't be flooded with water. Planting them too deep will drown any offspring and potentially restrict sunlight in certain areas of the pond plant. The crown should be no more than 2-3 inches below the water surface. If you have are using a container then be sure to account for the height of the container (Example: Blue Lobelia planted in a one gallon pot, 6 inches high, should be placed no more than 9 inches below the water surface). Bricks and/or upside down pots can be used to prop up the pond plants.

1 Gal (8" x 6")


    We recommend using the one gallon planting container for all hardy shelf plants. Use top soil, gravel should be placed on top to anchor the soil. We also suggest that standard fertilizer be used, two to three per container.
