Aquatic Plants

Swan Flower

Swan Flower (Butomus Umbellatus) is a hardy marsh plant that can grow up to 100 inches tall. This native aquatic plant filters pond water of waste so that it remains clear. In addition, thanks to its large colorful flowers, the plant also promotes biodiversity in and around the garden.

For aquatic plants, I recommend a minimum of two baskets of 8 plants per m³ (1,000 gallons of water). The amount needed depends on how quickly you want the pond to balance and your visual requirements.
