Aquatic Plants

Pond plants are some of the most important beautiful, and most overlooked assets to any water garden.  They are essential for the health of a pond.  Help provide shade for your fish,(yes, Koi can sunburn) keeping them stress free and healthy.  They help keep your pond clean, balanced and algae free.  Pond plants feed on unwanted nutrients like fish waste and nitrogen.  The best combination for your Koi pond is lots of live plants & good filtration & a minimal amount of fish = a healthy ecosystem.  AKA Clean Pond. 

Plant Calculation= L x W /4 example an 8x10 pond 8*10=80/4=20

This means you need 20 plants.

Many types of Aquatic Plants:

Bog Plants & Marginal Plants
These plants are shallow water plants. The top of the pot should be slightly above the water level.

Submerged Plants
These plants are sometimes called oxygenators or underwater plants.  These plants can go anywhere.

Floating Plants
Float on top of water they do not need to be planted.  They are the easiest of all pond plants to grow.

Hardy Lilies
Generally planted so that they are 6 to 24 inches deep in water.  Various types of lilies.  Flowering May-Sept.

Lotus
You can grow lotus outside or inside of your pond.  They should be planted 6 to 12 inches deep.  Blooms are very fragrant flowers which last 3-5 days.  THe bloom will close up at night.
