Naturalised in Britain.  Suitable for planting around the edges of ponds it gives a nice soft feel.  You can also plant alongside streams and lakes in shaded areas.  Can also be planted in bog gardens in permanently moist soil.

  • Height 15 cm (6in)

  • We would recommend a planting basket of at least 11cm across for one plant or, for more impact, plant several of the same variety in a larger basket.
  • We ship all marginal water plants bare root, this means that we wash the soil off before packing plants. During the summer months we may need to trim some of the foliage back for shipping.
