The Pickerel Weed has large, broad, green lance shaped leaves, which contrast wonderfully with the light blue flowers that appear in the summer. It grows up to an approximate height of 1.20m and thrives in water depths of 10cm to 20cm.
Caring and Maintenance
Maintain water depths greater than saturation, but shallower than the leaves year round.
Pond Plant Benefits
Marginal and 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 or on levelled shelves for original and attractive exposure. Marginal plants should be planted in boggy ground or shallow water for optimal growth results.
