Aquatic Plants:

Our most popular aquatic plants for sale are water lilies, water hyacinths, water lettuce, and water hawthorn. Aquatic plants are an integral part of your pond. They help the water and the fish. For example, water lilies are not only beautiful and fragrant, but they also provide fish with cover and keep algae down in your pond.

Water hyacinth is a free-floating perennial aquatic plant. It is originally found in tropical and sub-tropical South America. The leaves are 4–8 in across, and float on the surface. It can have 8-15 beautiful flowers, mostly lavender to pink with six petals each.

Considered a water weed in Florida, nevertheless, water lettuce is a pretty plant that’s popular with pond owners. It grows fast, provides cover for fish, and it keeps algae from overpopulating in your pond.

Water Hawthorn is widely grown in its native South Africa for its edible buds and flowers. In the US it’s used in aquariums and ponds. It has become “naturalized” in Southern and Coastal California. Interestingly, in the wild, it can become dormant and survives South African summer drought, only to emerge again with the autumn rains.

These are just the most popular of the aquatic plants we offer. Drop in and see the abundance of pond plants for sale – we are open seven days a week.

The roots of lotus are planted in the soil of the pond or river bottom, while the leaves float on top of the water surface or are held well above it. The flowers are usually found on thick stems rising several centimeters above the leaves. The plant normally grows up to a height of about 150 cm and a horizontal spread of up to 3 meters, but some unverified reports place the height as high as over 5 meters. The leaves may be as large as 60 cm in diameter, while the showy flowers can be up to 20 cm in diameter.
