Description

This native plant makes a beautiful choice for ponds with its hosta-like leaves and dainty pink to white panicles of flowers, on which dragonflies and damselflies will perch to feed. Flowers from June right through until September. Place at the edge of the pond, or the shelf of the pond for the best results.

Care Tips

Place on a pond shelf to a depth of between 5-15cm (2-6in) or plant at the pond edge so the roots are in constant contact with the water.
