- Aquatic Pond Plants and Watergarden Pond Plants --

Submerged and Floating Pond Plants
These pond plants are the most important of all pond plants.

 Submerged Pond Plants


Anacharis

Hornwort

Red Ludwigia

Vallisneria

These are "must have" pond plants for ponds and watergardens. They absorb impurities from the water. See Nitrogen Cycle They compete with algae for nutrients which reduces algae to keep the water clear. They produce oxygen for the fish to breath. Fish spawn and lay eggs in oxygenating plant cover. Baby fish use these pond plants for shelter to hide. They should be planted in pockets of gravel, garden dirt, and sand or a mix of these elements. Don't fertilize them. Let them absorb the excess nutrients (nitrates) present in your pond water. If your pond is brand new there will be nothing for them to feed on so you need to put 1 fertilizer tab near each group of plantings so they get a good root system going. The anacharis is the preferred choice for water gardeners world-wide and does a great job!

Floating pond plants are essential for a healthy pond. The #1 benefit of these pond plants is that they absorb excess nutrients from the water. This keeps algae at a minimum because the floating pond plants eat the nutrients before algae can get them, thereby starving the algae. Algae requires light to grow and floating pond plants reduce the available light. Just lay them on the water and you are done planting them! The floating roots provide spawning beds and protection for newborn fish. The most powerful of all of the floating pond plants is the Blue Shell Water Hyacinth.

Hardy Water Lilies - These stunning pond plants with rich vivid colors are the showpiece for your watergarden. You will be able to enjoy these lilies year after year. Hardy lilies are available in pink, red, white, yellow, peach/orange and changeable, which starts yellow and changes to copper. Hardy lilies are perennials and frost tolerant. Hardy lilies require very little care. Give them at least 5-6 hours of direct sunlight and still water 6-18" deep. Lilies come in a variety of colors and sizes and once established bloom continually all summer long. 

Hardy lilies perform many functions around the watergarden. Besides being very beautiful and fragrant, they provide shade and cover from predators. They absorb excess nutrients from the water. Hardy water lilies grow best in a generous amount of heavy garden soil, avoiding too much organic matter unless it has been well composted. Even the heaviest clay soils will work fine with the addition of a little sand and fertilizer. Depth should be maintained between 6" to 18" when first transplanted and then once established can be grown from 12" to 30" deep depending on the variety. Lilies are shipped to you bare-root.

NOTE: The lilies we ship are semi-mature. The lily pads (leaves) are about 3-6 inches across depending on the variety of lily. Most of the lilies we ship have active blooms, but they will fall off from transplant shock. You may get some new blooms for the rest of the year, but they will be small as the new root system needs to become established in your pond. Next year your blooms will be large and plentiful due to an established root base.

Hardy Water Lotus ( Nelumbo)


Lotus

Hardy Water Lotus - Lotus are considered sacred in Buddhist's beliefs. This group of water garden pond plants are sold as tubers and vary from as little as 3" long up to 18" long. The larger varieties have leaves capable of reaching 2 feet in circumference and colossal flowers up to 1 foot in diameter! The smaller varieties can have leaves and flowers as small as 2-3" but still require a spacious container. Lotus often take a year before they first put forth flowers. The wait is rewarded with exhilaration when the lotus plant demonstrates its flowering capabilities. Lotus need to be planted when the water temperature is at least 70 degrees.

Hardy Bog Pond Plants - Marginal Pond Plants
"Marginal" pond plants means "Around the Edges" of your pond in shallow water.

Hardy bog pond plants accent the water garden by adding color and shape to the water garden. Our pond plants are grown in 2" net pots to insure good root development to reduce transplant shock. Our method of growing the bog pond plants in this way reduces the likelihood of the plant dying back like bare root stock normally would. The size of the plant that we ship varies by variety. We try to ship pond plants that are semi-mature not just new starts.

Tropical Water Lilies (Nymphaea)
Tropical lilies can easily be distinguished from hardy lilies in that the leaves are serrated or jagged.
-

Tropical Water Lilies can be the centerpieces for your water garden. Tropical lilies are exotic! They evoke romance and glamour. They are very fragrant and are exquisite as cut flowers. Tropical lilies are treated as annuals and are frost tender. They hold their blossoms high above the water and come in vibrant colors - blue, lavender, pink, green, purple, red, white, yellow and autumn shades. They can have several blooms at a time. The flowers stay open later in the day than the hardy lilies and they also bloom later into the season. Tropical lilies come in day blooming and night blooming varieties. The day blooming varieties open several hours after sunrise and stay open until several hours after sunset. A pond containing both day and night blooming lilies can be enjoyed any hour of the day or night. Some are viviparous (growing plantlets on their leaves) which indicates they are more cold tolerant. The night blooming varieties will open an hour or two before sunset and stay open as late as noon on a cloudy day. Tropical water lilies grow best in a generous amount of heavy garden soil. Even the heaviest clay soils will work fine with the addition of a little sand and fertilizer. Depth should be maintained between 6" to 18" when first transplanted and then once established can be grown from 12" to 30" deep depending on the variety. Lilies are shipped to you bare-root.

NOTE: The lilies we ship are semi-mature. The lily pads (leaves) are about 3-6 inches across depending on the variety of lily. Most of the lilies we ship have active blooms, but they will fall off from transplant shock. You may get some new blooms for the rest of the year, but they will be small as the new root system needs to become established in your pond. Next year your blooms will be large and plentiful due to an established root base.

RESTRICTED PLANTS: Some states have bans on certain pond plants. Check the USDA Noxious Plants website prior to purchase. The buyer needs to beware of any regulations on plants that may be restricted. If your order gets confiscated by your state agriculture department we cannot be held responsible.

CLIMATE VARIATIONS: We guarantee our plants will arrive alive and healthy. Pond Plants grow differently depending on where you live. If you took pond plants of the same type, and planted them in different parts of the USA, each plant would grow differently. This is Mother Nature at work. We cannot guarantee that your climate will support long term growth as this varies by location. With experience you will find which pond plants thrive in your USDA Zone. Join our Pond, Watergarden and Plant Forum and ask some questions before you buy is the best advice we can give you.
