Floating aquatics

These plants will add extra interest to any pond. They do not need planting as they float on the surface of the water and reproduce freely by runners. They can also provide excellent cover for fish and other aquatic wildlife.

Floating plants reduce the amount of sunlight falling into the water and absorb nutrients thus reducing the amount of algae that is able to be produced in the water.
