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: 0-30cm
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection)

    One of the hardier forms, it is suitable for naturalising in milder climates, and may retain its foliage throughout the winter. It is however for its pure white flowers, which are produced in succession from late spring, that it is most highly prized.

  • Garden care: Apply a deep mulch in autumn.
  • Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant
