Himalayan marigold (Caltha Palustris Alba)

Himalayan marigold (Caltha Palustris Alba) is a marginal shallow water plant.  It is a white flowering form of the more commonly known marsh marigold. The pretty blooms having white petals with yellow centres and we love to see them in flower. Like its yellow cousin it flowers early in the season  letting you know that spring is here and often produces more blooms later in the summer. It is happy growing in an inch or two of water  in your pond margins or in boggy ground at the water’s edge.

  • Height 15cm (6 inches).
  • Plant in 0-6 cm of water or in permanently moist boggy ground.

  • Easy to maintain cut back after flowering to promote new growth.
