Pond plants are essential in creating a well balanced ecosystem in your water garden. It is recommended to have one third to one half of the surface area covered with plants during the heat of the summer.
Choosing pond plants from each of the four groups of water garden plants will help create a balanced ecosystem in your pond.
FLOATING POND PLANTS – Floating pond plants are prolific growers and will spread across the waters’ surface providing shade and coverage for the water gardens inhabitants. Floating aquatic plants are excellent for filtration because their roots absorb nutrients from the water that might otherwise cause algae. The roots of the floating plants provide spawning places for fish and create a hiding place for baby fish.
SUBMERGED OXYGENATING PLANTS – Submerged pond plants are often referred to as oxygenating plants. Submerged plants receive nutrients from the water and help keep water clear. Baby fish love to hide in Hornwort and Anacharis. Use one bunch for every 2 to 4 square feet of surface area.
HARDY WATER LILIES – We offer a large selection of hardy waterlilies for your pond. Your water garden isn’t complete without a waterlily. Water Lilies are available in a variety of colors and sizes. The lily pads provide shade and protection for your water garden inhabitants. The waterlily plant, once established in your water garden will reward you with many flowers throughout the summer months. Hardy lilies will bloom continuously May thru September. They overwinter well and the water lily will return in the spring once again rewarding you with a lovely pond plant.
BOG PLANTS, POND LOTUS AND MARGINAL POND PLANTS – Hardy bog plants and tropical marginal pond plants accent the water garden by adding shape and color to the water garden. Adding bog plants or marginal plants along the edge of the water garden, stream bed or waterfall will give your pond a more natural appearance. Many of the tropical bog plants will winter over as house plants.
