From 3rd August 2016 the European Commission have listed Eichornia crassipes ‘Major’ ( Water Hyacinth) as being an invasive species. We are allowed to supply this plant and are happy to do so for the next 12 months during the transitional period of agreement. Eichornia is a Tender Annual and whilst it may be invasive in warmer European climates, here in all parts of the UK the plant will die during our winters so CAN NOT be invasive.
Eichornia crassipes ‘Major’ is a beautiful ornamental plant for ponds, attracting pollinating insects to the garden. The decision was fought by UK Horticultural bodies to not be registered invasive in our country, however please act responsibly, enjoy this plant in your garden, do not take this plant with you outside of the UK, which could be an offence.
