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? Typha Minima, better known as Miniature Cattail, is a deciduous perennial with grass-like, very narrow, stiff, green leaves. Rising above this foliage are decorative, miniature, cylindrical seed heads. It is a very effective plant for moist sites around ponds and anywhere were the soil is wet or constantly moist. It is the miniature version of the native Cat-Tail. The plants remain attractive well into winter. They can also be easily grown in a tub.
