Description

The European Frog-bit (Hydrocharis morsus-ranae) is a native plant of the UK that has become increasingly popular in recent years for its attractive, floating flowers and insect-sheltering abilities. The Frog-bit grows best in ponds, lakes and still waterways, with its rosette of small leaves and three-petalled white flowers often blooming during the months of July and August. What makes the Frog-bit particularly unique is its winter dormancy; when winter comes, the plant’s buds bury themselves in the mud at the bottom of the pond until they reemerge come spring. Not only does this make for quite the resilient plant, but it also provides valuable shelter for tadpoles.

NOTE THE LEAVES ARE VERY FRAGILE AND SOME DAMAGE MAY OCCUR IN TRANSIT PLANTS WILL RECOVER

Repotting or planting

We suggest 3-5 small floating Frogbit plants per 1m²

Care instructions

Allow Frogbit to die back naturally as in the autumn small buds are formed which fall off and sink to the bottom and the old plant rots away. Hydrocharis Morsus winter buds remain on the bottom to rise again in the spring to form new plants.
