Orange Peel Plant (Houttuynia Plena)

Orange Peel Plant (Houttuynia Plena) is a shallow water marginal pond plant.   It is a very underrated plant but a very useful plant for covering the edges of ponds or decorating banks and pond margins or bog gardens and has an orange peel scent.  It is a very popular choice of landscape architects for this reason and it is easy to maintain. It has beautiful double white flowers in June and July

  • Height 30cm ( 12in )
  • Position in full sun to part shade
  • Planting depth 0 – 10 cm in the margins of your pond or in moist boggy soil
  • Cut back after flowering to tidy up.
  • Easy to maintain
  • 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.
