Water forget-me-not Myosotis Scorpioides - 1L Pot

Myosotis Scorpioides is a delightful rafting aquatic perennial used for flowering pond margins and creating an excellent cover for the habitat of fish and pond life. This is a charming native plant with masses of small blue flowers with yellow centres that contrast beautifully with the bright green foliage. Myosotis Scorpioides is an evergreen plant, which means that the foliage of the plant persists and remains green throughout the year.

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 plant which requires a well moisturised environment. Propagate by division at the end of the summer or very early in spring.

Help to conserve our native British flora by planting with our native plant range. These marginal pond plants grow naturally in the shallow water at the edge of the pond and are ideal for wildlife ponds or water features. As well as their attractive foliage and flowers, they provide a natural habitat for small pond creatures. The rafting varieties, such as the Water Forget-me-not, Brooklime, and Water Mint, spread out in small floating rafts, giving cover to baby fish and tadpoles. The tall emergent plants are essential for dragonflies and damsalfly nymphs to climb out of the water and transform into adults, and waterfowl like to nest among dense reeds and rushes. All plants contribute to the ecological haven of a natural pond, benefiting wildlife from tiny pond insects to mammals that like to visit for a drink.
