Grow creeping Jenny as a groundcover, around and between the rocks in your pond or in submerged containers. It thrives in moist soil or water up to an inch deep, in full sun to part shade. The plants have chartreuse leaves, tiny yellow flowers and a trailing growth habit. Recommended for zones 3 to 10, it can be invasive but is easily managed by pulling. Never discard the plants in lakes or public waterways where they can spread.

Most pond plants do not need soil to grow. Fish waste and decaying fish food may be enough to meet pond plants' nutritional requirements. If the pond is not stocked with fish or you need a little extra nutrition, a liquid fertilizer formulated for ponds will provide it through the water. Soil can actually increase the growth of bacteria around plant roots. Soil also seeps out of its designated area, muddying pond water and clogging filters.

WATER HAWTHORNE is a lovely lily-like pond plant that is the first to bloom in winter. It will actually push flowers up thru the pond ice in spring. Goes dormant in summer and blooms again in fall. The flowers smell amazing! Good for small to medium size ponds.
