Growing Calendar for Aponogeton distachyos - water hyacinth - 3Ltr pot plant
Delivery: Early April to Late July
Introduce this water hawthorn to ponds for waterlily-like leaves and heavily-scented flowers appearing from summer and into autumn.
This plant makes a great alternative to waterlilies. The leaves that float on the surface provide shelter for aquatic wildlife like fish and frogs and cover bare patches in parts of the ponds.
Flower stems appear from summer and last into autumn. Their heavy perfume makes it a great pond plant for scent and the long-flowering season is an additional bonus.
Just plant up this 3 litre container into a larger one, filled with aquatic compost and topped with attractive stones to hold the soil in place.
