Floating Plants

Floating Plants


Floating Plants decrease the amount of sun penetrating pond water by providing additional shade on the surface. All Floating Plants also have roots that hang directly into the pond water, drawing nutrients from the water that would otherwise fuel the growth of algae. Because of this, Floating Plants are great preventatives of excessive algae growth, but are Tropical for Zones 1 - 9.

Azolla

Azolla 'Azolla Caroliniana' is made up of many tiny pieces of leaf and root, and is sold in a baseball-sized portion. It appears green for most of the growing season, and can often change to red or auburn color. Sold at $5 per portion, or 3 portions for $13.
