Floating Pond Plants

Floating Pond plants are one of the most desirable additions to the water garden as they can quickly cover much surface area, shading the pond water and providing a protective place for the fish to hide on a hot sunny day. Floating plants use nutrients from the water competing with algae to help keep the pond clear. They do not require planting because their roots actually feed directly from the water. They do this at such a fast rate that it is not unusual for them to cover the surface of the water in as little as a few weeks time. It is this rapid growth and removing nutrients from the water that makes them so important in keeping a healthy, clean, and clear water garden.

Water Lilies (Nymphaea)

TROPICAL WATER LILIES (nymphaea)
A tropical water lily is a magnificent centerpiece for the water garden. They hold their fragrant blossoms high out of the water and can have several exquisite blooms at a time. The flowers stay open later in the day than the hardy water lilies and they also bloom later into the season. Tropical lilies can easily be distinguished from hardy water lilies in that the leaves are serrated or jagged. Tropical lilies come in day blooming and night blooming varieties. The day blooming varieties open several hours after sunrise and stay open until several hours before sunset. Some varieties of tropical water lilies are viviparous (growing plantlets on their leaves) which indicates they are more cold tolerant and will continue to bloom through fall in colder climates. The night blooming varieties will open an hour or two before sunset and remain open as late as noon on a cloudy day. For best performance plant tropical water lilies in at least a 2 gallon or larger plant container with a generous amount of heavy garden soil. Even the heaviest clay soils will work fine with the addition of a little sand and fertilizer. Fertilize monthly to reach maximum blooming potential. Depth should be maintained between 6" and 18" when first transplanted and then once established can be grown from 12" to 30" depending on the variety. Water temperatures should be at least 65 degrees before planting tropical water lilies in your water garden.

HARDY WATER LILIES (nymphaea) The hardy water lily with its profuse and extravagant blossoms is a winter hardy or perennial plant. Lilies come in a variety of colors and sizes and once established bloom continuously all summer. Hardy lilies can easily be distinguished from their tropical counterparts in that the leaves are smooth around the edges. Hardy water lilies perform many functions in the water garden. Water lilies provide shade, coverage for fish, utilize water-born nutrients and insulate the water from extreme day/night temperature fluctuations. Hardy water lilies grow best in a generous amount of heavy garden soil avoiding too much organic matter unless it has been well composted. Even the heaviest clay soils will work fine with the addition of a little sand and fertilizer. Depth should be maintained between 6" and 18" when first transplanted and then once established can be grown from 12" to 30" depending on the variety. Fertilize monthly to reach maximum blooming potential.

Submerged Pond Plants - Oxygenating Plants

Submerged pond plants are also referred to as oxygenating plants and are a must have for your water garden. Submerged plants compete with algae for the nutrients in the water keeping the pond clear. You don't need to fertilize submerged plants because you want them to use the nutrients in the water. They are sold in bunches of 6 - 8 stems, except Vallisneria which is a rooted plant. It is advised to use one bunch of plants per one to two square feet of surface area. The easiest way to sink them is with the lead weights, just wrap them around the base of the plant and put them in the pond. Alternatively, you can plant your submerged plants in a small pot or basket with pea gravel.

Hardy Water Lotus Tubers (Nelumbo)


Lotus ship March through June. Lotus can be ordered as of Jan 1st, but will not ship until zone appropriate.

Water Lotus are hardy perennials. This group of water garden plants are sold as tubers and, depending on the variety, vary from as little as 3" long up to 18" long. The larger varieties have leaves capable of reaching 2' in circumference and colossal flowers up to 12" in diameter. The smaller varieties can have leaves and flowers as small as 2" - 3" but still require a spacious container to be able to spread out and attain optimum development. Lotus commonly take a year before they will begin to put forth flowers. It is our experience that the wait is rewarded with exhilaration when the lotus plant demonstrates its flowering capabilities. Lotus tubers are shipped March through June. They need to be planted when the water temperature is at least 70 degrees.
