|Water Hyacinth bears leathery foliage creep across the surface of pond.
The foliage helps to provide shade and the roots provide filtration, a
spawning area for the pond fish, and absorb excess nutrients from the water,
helping to reduce algae. It also is an excellent water clarifier. The delicate,
purple flowers have a yellow "eye" on one petal, last approximately one
day, but bloom throughout the season, and add a pleasing splash of color
to the pond. The flowers grow on 6-inch stems at the center of a rosette
of glossy bulb-like leaves. These leaves will gather air in pockets and
keep the plant afloat. Reaches height of 6-12".
Because the Water Hyacinth has a tropical nature, it will require heat and full sun to thrive and flower. Yellowish leaves are a sign of insufficient nutrients in the water; move plants with yellowing leaving to an alternate area and add plant food to their water, rotating with plants left in the pond. A vigorous reproducer, it can quickly take over the water garden. Remove excess plants to help prevent this from happening. Zones 9-11.
Note: This is a seasonal plant and only ships from April 15th to September 30th. This plant will be available to order in March and will be deliverable in April.
