Floating plants are likely the most commonly added to the garden pond. They require little care, improve water quality as well as provide shade and cover for fish. They are annuals in the northern parts of the country and perennial in the south. Due to their prolific nature they are under increased regulation by Federal, State and Local governments. As with all plants; non-native plants should never be released into natural water ways. If you have a native preference please contact us directly for preferred plant options for your area.
