Premium Series - Pond Marginal Iris Laevigata Mottled Beauty Kit - Van Zyverden
about this item
We want you to be successful in growing your pond plants and use top quality components to enhance the experience. Pond plant marginals (sometimes called bog plants) are essential in creating a healthy ecosystem in your pond. While they rely on pond water for nutrients, they improve water quality by extracting excess detrimental nutrients from the pond environment before they can accumulate, and they also provide oxygen. These colorful, exotic, lush plants, grow in the shallow water or saturated soil around the rim or margins of a pond where the water meets the hand. Though the roots grow underwater, the majority of the plant grows and lives out and above the water. Our water plant kits come with everything needed to grow your plant: basket, plant, medium, gravel and fertilizer. Bog plants and marginals along the edge of the water garden, stream bed, or waterfall will give your pond a more natural look. What is a pond without pond plants? Iris laevigata Mottled Beauty is a Japanese aquatic bog iris. The six petaled white flowers are overlaid with deep blue speckles and have mid-green leaves. This iris is very tolerant of warm and cold temperatures.
