A gorgeous, colourful floating plant which will decorate your pond with its delicate lilac blooms. This semi-evergreen plant has broad leaves and can grow vigorously in the right conditions. Plant in and around your pond for colour and variation in your pond life.
Water Hyacinths are difficult to propagate, so best bought as a new plant. Simply float on water's surface.
Caring and Maintenance:
Ensure that the plant does not become invasive by pruning as necessary. Please note that this plant is not frost hardy and requires frost protection to ensure survival.
A perennial is a plant that lives for more than two years. Perennials are flowering plants which grow and bloom over the spring and summer and then die back every autumn and winter. They typically grow structures that allow them to adapt to living from one year to the next through a form of vegetative reproduction rather than seeding. Perennial plants often have deep, extensive root systems which can hold soil to prevent erosion, capture dissolved nitrogen before it can contaminate ground and surface water, and outcompete weeds. They grow very well in conditions that are poor in resources due to their earlier emergence in the spring, and the development of larger root systems which can access water and soil nutrients deeper in the soil.
This plant is suitable for zones 1, 4 & 5 of a pond.
