This group contains some of the real stars of The Water Garden. They include both spectacular flowering species, that put on a beautiful show for a month or two and species with wonderful foliage, that add interest for the entire growing season. Many can be also be used to disguise the pond edge and are invaluable for providing cover, so that amphibians can safely enter or leave a pond.
In the wild, marginal plants grow at the pond margins, where the water level fluctuates according to rainfall and the time of year. This means, that these plants can cope with some variation in water depth, but most have an ideal planting depth that you should take into account. All of our plants come with labels, so that you can make sure that you plant them at the correct depth.
