Also known as smartweed, this marginal plant has elongated stems and leaves which float on the surface while the bottle brush-like, pink flowers rise above the water. Fast-growing in bog gardens and can also grow in quite deep water (80cm).
Repotting or planting
9cm marginal plants require potting into a larger mesh basket. Place in a pond no deeper than 1/3 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish. 1ltr marginal plants do not require repotting, place in pond no deeper than 1/2 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish. 3ltr and 5ltr plants do not require repotting, as they are larger more established plants they can be placed up to the maximum recommended depth. There is no need to remove the mesh basket.
Place in shallower water and allow to grow into deeper water or lower the basket slowly over time.
