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.

Answer from Primrose: "Thank you for your review. As with all pond plants, it is important to ensure that these floating hyacinths have access to the best environment needed for growth. Make sure that the plants are in the correct pond zone – 1, 4 or 5. These exotic plants often need a hot summer to flower. This means that thanks to our recent heatwave you may be already noticing your flowers perking up! "
