Carex Pendula is a tall emergent perennial plant, native to Britain, which helps to maintain optimal pond water conditions and naturally streamline filtration processes. It also has highly decorative properties which make it a versatile plant, suitable for beautifying ponds margins and water-flows. It features large, dense tufts of dark green leaves and tall, smooth stems with drooping brown catkin-like flowers in summer. Its foliage drops gracefully over the water when mature. Carex Pendula is an evergreen plant, which means that the foliage of the plant persists and remains green throughout the year.

Planting:

Plant in a medium sized pot with up to 24cm of water above the planting basket or in the damp soil. Plant spacing: 50-70cm. Aquatic and marginal plants should be placed in pond plant baskets filled with aquatic soil (sold separately) and topped with a thin layer of gravel to help prevent the soil from washing away. This plant is suitable for zone 2 of a pond.

Caring and Maintenance:

This is a very low maintenance yet vigorous pond side plant which spreads to form large clumps quickly. Propagate from seeds in autumn or by division from mid-spring to early summer. To limit self-seeding, the stems may be cut after flowering. All wandering clumps can be trimmed to control plant growth.

Our range of filtration plants include varieties that have been specially selected for their excellent ability to absorb toxins and waste products from the water. Their roots grow into dense underwater mats, nature's way of filtering the pond water to keep it clear and sweet. They also help in attaining a natural, balanced pool without using harmful chemicals. These water-plants are now used extensively throughout Europe by water authorities to treat raw sewage before being released back into the environment. This collection offers a cost-effective natural filtration system.
