Nymphoides Peltata Fringed Water Lily

Nymphoides Peltata, or the Fringed Waterlily, is a delicate little plant that has a profusion of yellow flowers on plantlets that float across the water surface. Nymphoides Peltata can be vigorous in very shallow, marshy ground. No maintenance is necessary but excess growth can be trimmed when required, as with the common water lily.

In a pond, the Fringed Water Lily makes an excellent addition to other lilies. Deep water pond plants are more tolerant of shade and moving water but equally good at providing surface cover, helping to keep the water clear. Nymphoides Peltata can make a good addition to any pond but it can grow fast so may need trimming. Spread is an estimate of one years growth.

Where do you plant deep water pond plants?
Deep Water Plants are best placed in still water away from constant splashing and flow from the likes of fountains and waterfalls. Nymphoides Peltata Fringed Water Lily grows best in full sun but can tolerate some shade. When placing Deep Water Plants into the pond make sure to lower them in stages to allow the plant to acclimatize to its new depth, this way the leaves can stretch to the surface during each stage of the descent.
