Low Growing Pond Plants

Hardy Shelf Plants: Flowering Plants
Low Growing Plants
Arrowhead Plants
Iris Plants
Cattails, Reeds, & Rushes

     Low growing pond plants are known for adding a height variety ammoung other taller pond plants sush as Arrowheads, Cattails, Reeds, and Rushes. They provide a good base, and are recuringly looked upon as good fillers. For more information regarding specific details, please read below.

     These low growing 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: Aquatic Mint 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.
