Caring and Maintenance

This is a very low maintenance plant which requires a well moisturised environment. Remove faded flowers to maintain the look of the plant throughout the flowering period. Propagate by root division in spring or grow from seeds.

Please note: parts of the plant may cause skin allergic reaction.

Plants from the Ornamental collection grow naturally in shallow waters and at the edges of ponds. Low growing rafting types have charming flowers and attractive foliage, whilst tall emergent plants add structure and should be planted at the far side of the pond or water feature. There is a wonderful variety of ornamental marginal plants available, with their flowering times ranging from as early as February through to October.
