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? Louisiana Iris Black Gamecock, a tropical bog plant, is probably the most famous of all the Louisiana Irises, and is a native North American wildflower. Although available in various colors, this one has stunning, blackish blooms that reach 6 inches across. They thrive in a well watered garden or naturally wet area.
