Deep Water Plants

Deep water plants are waterlily-like plants that when planted with lilies extend the flowering season and add extra interest to the pond.

Unlike waterlilies, several of these plants will thrive in moving water and do not need as much sunlight.

Deep water plants like lilies provide shade and refuge for fish, amphibians and insects.

The water depth quoted for the deep water plants is from the top of the pot.
