Water Garden Plants

Water gardens have long been famous in private and public areas, dating back to prehistoric times. It's easy to see why. Water soothes our senses and appeals to all. Aquatic plants are more than pretty. They also aid in the reduction of algae in your water garden. There are a variety of sorts.

Water Garden Plants have many uses in wetland environments

· Floating plants float on the water's surface and extract nutrients from the water.

· Deepwater plants can have 4-10 inches of water above their crown.

· Submerged plants — they are also known as oxygenates. They float on the water's surface; you can plant them in pots at the pond's bottom.

· Bog plants can only survive with 3 inches of water over their crown.

Water gardens have limited space. So, choose different plants to add color, height, interest, and algae control to bring your water garden to life. The water also attracts wildlife like pollinators, frogs, and birds that visit the beneficial garden. There are an array of plants to choose from for your water garden. Some may need a lot more maintenance than others. Here are some you can choose from:

1. Water Lilly.

There are two types of water lilies, the hardy and the tropical. The tropical water Lilly will not withstand the cold and must be them as annuals or kept during the winter. If you plant them below the freezing line, the hardy water Lilly will survive the winter. Whichever type you choose, they will add color to your water garden. Lilly is planted in the soil submerged in water up to 6 inches; they will appear to float on the water's surface.

2. Cattails.

The cattail is a fast-spreading plant with recognizable spikes of fluffy brown flowers and lovely green foliage. They give the environment a unique architectural look through their sword-like leaves and brown inflorescence that resemble cattails. The "tails" of these plants also provide nutrient-dense food and nesting materials for birds, bees, and other animals.

3. Bulrush.

In North America, 14 different types of bulrush grow in clusters. Bulrushes may operate as a filter, absorbing toxic metals and bacteria and thus reducing water pollution. Strong mats, baskets, and chair seats are woven from their stems.

4. Creeping Jenny.

Damp grasslands, riverbanks, ponds, and wet woods are home to creeping jenny, a low-growing plant. It's famous for garden ponds because of its cup-like yellow blossoms. They grow well around pond edges and in bog gardens, preferring shade to direct sunlight.

5. Blue-eyed grass.

This charming perennial grows along stream banks, wet meadows, and woodland edges. Despite their name, they don't look like grass at all. Blue-eyed grass belongs to the Irish family. Depending on the classification system, they have an array of species ranging from 50-150.
