Plant in bog gardens or in shallow water with a depth between 10cm and 20cm. This plant is suitable for zones 2 of a pond.

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.
