Water Garden Plants
Green Vista has a wide selection of water garden plants
including hardy water lilies, day and night blooming tropical water lilies,
lotus, bog plants, oxygenators and floating plants. Our selection of winter hardy pond plants
is one of the largest in the Midwest and have been chosen and grown for the Ohio Valley. Hardy
water lilies (perennials) are the queen of the water garden, blooming
in shades of red, pink, yellow, orange, peach and white from May to October year after year.
We also offer beautiful tropical (annual)
varieties of water lilies, each year that provide their own breathtaking colors and
fragrances to the water garden. Tropical water lilies out bloom and out
perform the hardies, plus come in an even wider array of fragrances and dazzling colors. Night blooming
tropicals extend enjoyment into the evening and beyond.
Lotus (perennials) are the
kings of the water garden, some growing to over 5 feet in height with leaves close to
2 feet across. Blooms grace the plants in mid-summer, followed by distinctive seed pods often used in
plants (perennials) offer almost unlimited choices for the water gardener. Most do
well with 1-3" of water above the crown of the plant and prefer full sun.
floaters (annuals) are the impatiens and petunias of the water garden. Easy to grow
in sun or shade and incredibly vigorous in in good conditions. Hyacinth and lettuce
also make great filter plants.
All of our Pond ReadyTM plants come pre-potted, fertilized and ready to
place in your garden pond for years of enjoyment.
