Water Clover
Water Clover

Marsielea quadrifolia

You won’t have to find a four-leaf clover to wish upon if you plant this small aquatic in your pond. Its peridot green leaves divide into four distinct parts, just like its namesake. Plant it near the bank or in your pond and it will soon produce a three to six inch lacy green curtain ideal for shading and sheltering fish. The evergreen fern relative grows from four to six inches tall in shallow water. Native to the Northern Hemisphere, it’s perfect for most ponds and for making wishes. (Deciduous)

Water Swan
Water Swan

Ever think what fun it would be to have a swan in your pond? You can plant this unique perennial and its leaves will mature to look like your pond harbors graceful green “swans.” The Alisima gramineum bears tiny, delicate ivory blossoms on long stems. The leaves vary depending on their age and the water’s depth. Young ones trail like dainty ribbons. As they develop, they become broader and more rounded and float on the water’s surface. Finally they assume their swan like appearance. (Deciduous)
