Low lying or creeping plants for your marginal bog areas, streams and creek beds.
Larger, fleshier version of Bacopa. An excellent plant for the edges of ponds, where there might be some unsightly concrete showing. Bright green leaves arranged along a creeping stem which will grow to several feet in length. Plant will form floating or prostrate colonies which will cover areas of open water or pond/stream embankments. Will tolerate traffic, frost, extreme heat, and can be used to stabilize wet hilsides. It produces small lavender blossoms all summer. It can be anchored with gravel or small stones in shallow water areas.(1-2" of water)

A beautiful plant which produces bright green, ovate leaves one inch long and a half an inch wide. It will form thickets by branching and running through the substrate. If allowed to grow out of the aquarium it will reward the aquarist with bright blue flowers and foliage that is scented like peaches, a scent it will retain when the foliage has dried. It grows well in strong light with moderate feeding and pruning. Can be planted in with your waterlilies, lotus or bog plants. Can also be anchored in shallow water areas using small stones or gravel or grown in shallow trays.
Hygrophila diformis is one of the most versatile of all aquatic plants. For the aquarist, this is one of the plants that make water gardening worthwhile. Leaves are bright green, large, and showy. They are deeply incised on their margins and, in the extreme case, have an almost ferny appearance. Our photo here hardly does it justice. In the proper setting, they are easy to grow and can be quite beautiful.
For the pond keeper, this plant offers a flowery edge treatment. Please see IBP158
Stems are prostrate to semi-erect, branching, and will grow to 6 feet long or more. The leaves are bright green, elliptic or oblong, and sometimes grow to 5 inches in length. The yellow and daisy-like flowers are up to 2.5" in diamter and are produced in masses at the ends of the stems. They occur in the late summer or in early to mid fall and produce a remarkable display after everything else has finished for the season. An excellent filtration plant if placed in main water flow of the pond. Stems will float on the surface of the water. Sold in bunches of three or more stems.
Stout, erect bog plant that often grows up to 2 feet tall and has large, bright green, chordate leaves. Leaves are frequently larger than a man's hand and are held on stems which can grow up to 2 feet long. The 1 inch wide white flowers are held in clusters of up to a dozen or more along a long, branched stem at 4 to 5 inch intervals. Adventitious daughter plants are produced from the same area as the flowers and will root freely when they come into contact with moist soil or water. This is a useful plant along the edge of a pond or in a bog. The flowers are seen from spring through summer.
Identical to its green counterpart, with the esception that this form is yellow-green. The two look very nice together. They will grow on dry ground or in floating mats over several feet of water. They are useful in streams, pond margins, and in fountain basins. They will tolerate full sun or deep shade, although they do not produce their bright yellow flowers in shade.
Prostrate plant that produces oppositely opposed, rounded leaves. Versitile use as cover for ponds edge and will cover moist ground outside of pond as well, giving a nice flowing transition from your terrestrial garden to your watergarden. Can also be anchored in shallow water areas using small stones or gravel. Will grow in semi-shade or full sun. Best used as a foliage plant as it blooms only ocassionally.
Glossy, narrow to broadly ovate leaves stand on 2\"-6\" stems. Bright yellow flowers are held above and among the leaves spring through summer. Provides a nice, low-growing marginal plant for streams and pond sides, or in bogs.
A lovely plant with gray-green leaves, purple flowers, and a nice, light fragrance when bruised. Blooms spring through summer, and will grow in deep water in a submersed form or in the emersed form shown here. Does well in frost-free areas, and in sun or shade.
