This charming little floating plant requires no maintenance and displays delightfully rounded broad leaves. Growing eventually up to 100cm, this little deciduous plant is best grown in still, alkaline water, where it can enjoy the sun and dot your pond with its quaint blooms.
Grow in still, alkaline water, deep enough to prevent freezing in order to protect overwintering buds.
Caring and Maintenance
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.
