Plants for Small Ponds

A small pond needs plants that won’t grow wild, but it certainly doesn’t limit your choices! You’ll need to pick a clever combination of oxygenating, floating and submerged plants as well as choosing flowers, ferns and grasses for the pond’s edges. Discover dwarf water lilies, miniature bulrushes, vibrant vertical reeds, compact irises and more - they’re all specially chosen to suit small or mini ponds.
