Marginals - Attractive range of surface water plants
Acorus gramineus Ogon (Golden variegated sweet flag)
This variegated semi-evergreen has aromatic, showy bright yellow & green striped foliage that grows in attractive wide fans forming large low growing clumps. Little maintenance is required. Trim just above the water surface after foliage has died back in Autumn to tidy leaving a little material to protect new shoots. Flowers June to September growing 25-35cm in height.
Juncus effusus spiralis (Corkscrew rush)
This evergreen is a must-have for any small pond. It has an unusual corkscrew twist to the cylindrical foliage. Although evergreen, cutting it back in early spring encourages fresh new growth. Evergreen. Trim in early spring to encourage new growth. Flowers June to August growing 25-45cm in height.
Oenanthe javanica 'Flamingo' (Variegated water dropwort)
The beautiful tricolour foliage is pink, white and green in spring, maturing to a darker green and pink in autumn. Tiny, creamy white flowers in umbels appear in mid-summer. This plant can be trimmed as required at any time during the growing season. Flowers July to August growing 30-40cm in height.
Scirpus cernuus OXY (Fibre optic plant)
This attractive evergreen has an apt common name. The glossy thread-like leaves have minute white flower spikes on the tips of each leaf. Evergreen. Trim in early spring to encourage new growth. Flowers June to September growing 20-30cm in height.
Caltha palustris (Marsh marigold, King cup)
Once established it produces a mass of bright yellow flowers very early in the spring, almost a ball of yellow. After flowering in March and April most foliage will die back. Remove dead leaves to tidy and encourage a potential second flowering. Flowers March to April growing 30-50cm in height.
Iris pseudacorus 'Alba'
Broad green foliage and large creamy white flowers. The signal is etched in charcoal grey. As with all iris the tubers are harmful if eaten. After foliage has died back in Autumn cut back to just above the water surface. If trimming left until spring take care not to damage emerging shoots. Flowers June to July growing 80-100cm in height.
Aponogeton distachyo (Water hawthorn)
Free flowering for most of the year. Very hardy, if protected from frost, it will flower all winter. It dies back for a short time in August. Fragile leaves may be damaged in transit, remove these and new will soon regrow. This plant looks fantastic early and late in the year. The foliage dies back in the summer. Leaves damaged in transit can be removed and new ones will grow. Plant in still water away from splashing fountains. Lower gradually so the leaves can stretch to the surface within a few days. Flowers March to July, September to December.
Intriguingly, the gorgeous blooms of this exceptional water lily are yellow when they first open, turning orange on the second day, and taking on a pinkish-red colour on the third. An excellent choice for any size of pond. Plant in still water away from splashing fountains. Lower gradually so the leaves can stretch to the surface within a few days. Remove dead leaves and flowers during the growing season. Flowers June to September.
Bunch Ceratophyllum demersum (Hornwort)
One of few submerged plants active in autumn and winter. Goldfish are partial to the young succulent leaves & many insects shelter in their tangled masses. In fast flowing water the leaves are held below the surface. In still shallow water the leaves may protrude but a centimetre or two. Can be dropped in pond as a weighted bunch but it benefits from being planted in soil. Flowers May to September.
