Pond Plants

Bank plants

Simon van der Velde

Riparian plants, also called Sumpfpflanzen , have a very good root system so they will grow quickly. These plants have a filtering property and absorb waste products which will reduce nitrate and nitrite concentrations. Our assortment consists of the strongest hardy species of riparian plants and always offer 100% growth and flowering guarantee. Tip: The water always warms up fastest in shallow areas such as the bank. As a result, algae growth occurs fastest in this zone. By adding extra plants and a combination of high water plants and low-growing oxygen plants in your bank you will prevent algae growth. For shoreline plants I recommend a minimum of 2 baskets with 4 plants (total of 8 plants) per 1 m².. The amount needed depends on how quickly you want the pond to balance and your visual requirements.

Frequently asked questions about riparian plants

Pond Advice

There is a wide range of riparian plants available to suit a variety of tastes and needs. Here are five strong and aesthetically pleasing options:

  1. Irises: These versatile plants come in colors such as yellow, blue, pink, white and black, and thrive in moist conditions such as banks and marshes.
  2. Lisodde: Known for its cigar-like inflorescences, this plant is ideal for shallow water and riparian zones.
  3. Water mint: This plant with its green leaves and purple flowers is not only beautiful, but also spreads a pleasant mint scent.
  4. Swanflower: With white or pink flowers, this plant is not only beautiful but also a useful food source for waterfowl.
  5. Calamus: With its long, narrow leaves and small yellow flowers, this plant spreads a pleasant fragrance and is ideal for shallow water areas.

All of our bank and Sumpfpflanzen are hardy, this means that the aquatic plants are dormant in the fall and bloom again in the spring. This makes our pond plants an investment you will enjoy for years to come.

Our riparian plants from our own nursery require very little care because we only grow hardy aquatic plants so the plants are very strong. All you can do from time to time is give some nutrition to the aquatic plant and prune the plant occasionally when you feel it is growing too fast.

Water rich in nutrients and oxygen promotes optimal root growth. For lush growth and flowering of both the roots and the plant itself, it is advisable to use special nutrient soil or growth substrate. To prevent the soil from washing away, you can cover it with gravel.

Riparian plants are a subcategory of Sumpfpflanzen and both thrive in the shallow, moist areas at the edge of a pond. They not only add aesthetic value to your pond, but also contribute to a healthy ecosystem. Other than the name, the plants do not differ from each other.
