Offering a Marginal Plant of our own choice. If you like surprises add this lot to the basket and we will send you an amazing marginal plant of our choice. The image used above is for illustration purposes only. Marginal plants are those which grow around the margins of the pond where the water is shallow. They usually have their soil and crown underwater, and sometimes their lower foliage as well. They are generally placed on planting shelves within the pond. In order to be considered a true marginal pond plant, the variety must be able to tolerate waterlogged soil or water over its crown all year. A plant that will tolerate permanently moist soil but will not tolerate water over its crown or foliage is considered a marsh plant. You can grow most marginal plants in drier conditions than this if you want – many will grow in a standard flower bed, provided that the soil is not allowed to absolutely dry out. However, you should not put a plant in deeper water than the recommended maximum. We combine the shipping cost if you order more goods from us.
