This Water forget-me-not has masses of sky blue, yellow- centred flowers from May- September. It provides colour when many marginal plants have ceased flowering. It can be planted in 5cms of water in sun to part shade. A must for informal ponds.
This striking plant has black banding horizontally on stems resembling porcupine quills. It is an excellent structural plant providing interest and contrast in the pond margins. It will thrive in boggy ground or pond edges with up to 15cms over the crown. This plant does well in sun to part shade. It is advisable to plant in a container to control the spread.
