Grasses

Grasses are one of the most versatile pond garden plants, whether you’re looking for tall ornamental grass or carpet-forming aquatic grasses these plants elevate any pondside or garden. Variegated grasses such as Reed Sweet Grass, are colourful, self-propagating grasses that grows in wet or submerged conditions, sometimes producing feathery panicles tinged with pink in spring and purple in autumn. Sedges, rushes and reed grass varieties also prefer moisture retentive or submerged conditions, and Dwarf Hairgrass has fine vibrant green stems that grow along the pond floor and is great for brightening and oxygenating murky ponds.
