Floating Plants

Floating plants are emergent in the spring and summer

Most of our native floating plants are emergent in the spring and summer when water temperatures rise.  They are dormant during the autumn and winter and survive as pips or bulblets that sink to the pond floor.   They are perennials and any new plants should be introduced to the pond in spring. 

As a general rule there should be 6 – 8 plants per 1m².

Species include – Stratiotes aloides, Hydrocharis morsus–ranae, Callitriche stagnalis.
