This pond plant dies right back in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Depth of water: 0-23cm (0-9in)
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The kidney-shaped dark green leaves of this lovely marsh marigold are excellent for softening the edges of a pond. One of the first marginal plants into bloom, it produces a mass of waxy, yellow buttercup-like flowers in April. It is ideally suited to boggy conditions, and will even cope in water up to 23cm deep for short periods of time.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps in late spring.
