Marginal plants are perfect for the borders of your pond where the water is most shallow, or perhaps on a planting shelf. They are able to tolerate waterlogged soil but should be planted no deeper than four inches below the water level. These hardy aquatic plants can be grown outside of the water also, as long as their soil is kept consistently moist.
Benefits: Strong growing grass with broad glossy leaves that turn brown in autumn and purple or violet flowers. This plant is frequently used in sewage treatment beds and it is still used for thatching.
Sun/Shade: Full sun to part shade
Flowering Months: Aug to Oct
Growth Rate: Fast
Best Growing Season: Spring, Summer
Minimum Height: 200cm
Maximum Height: 400cm

Helpful Tips: Trim just above the water surface in Autumn or enjoy the seed heads all winter and trim just before the new growth in spring.
Repotting or Replanting: 9cm marginal plants require potting into a larger mesh basket. Place in a pond no deeper than 1/3 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish. 1 litre marginal plants do not require repotting, place in pond no deeper than 1/2 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish, plants over 60cm height growth will benefit from repotting into a larger mesh basket or should be planted in gravel to prevent them from falling over. 3 litre and 5 litre plants do not require repotting, as they are larger more established plants they can be placed up to the maximum recommended depth. There is no need to remove the mesh basket.
