Description

A stunning choice that delivers on so many counts. Not only does it produce beautiful, lush green foliage and sweet star-shaped white flowers with subtle pink tips, but it’s the perfect place for dragonflies to safely lay their eggs. This plant excels when creeping along pond margins and will provide cover and habitats for pond life.

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. Cut back after flowering.
