    This plant can either be grown along the edges of a pond, or in other reliably moist conditions such as a bog garden. It is a creeping perennial, forming attractive leafy cover, but it comes into its own in early summer when the sprays of small, bright blue flowers appear.

  • Garden care: These plants are potted up (using a suitable aquatic compost) into 1-litre aquatic pots. These pots are made of a fine mesh, which allows water to circulate through the compost, providing the plants with both oxygen and nutrients. If you are using them as a aquatic plant, they can be placed straight into the pond, however they will preform better if planted out sooner rather than later. To enhance flowering divide congested clumps every three to five years.
