Caring and Maintenance

This is a very low maintenance. You should cut back any dying foliage in autumn, and old flower stems can be cut down after flowering.

Pond Plant Benefits

Pondside plants add interest, colour and structure to ponds, and offer the benefit of delightful fragrance. They are ideal for places near to patio or decking areas, where their sweet aroma can be appreciated. The plants can be positioned around the perimeter of a pond for original and attractive exposure.
