Pontederia corndata need to be planted deep in the water to protect their crowns in winter from frost or ice on the waters surface. Divide in Spring after 2-3 years growth. Cut back leaf stems of Pontederia as soon as they start to fall in Autumn as they have a high cellulose content that will disperse into the water. The flowers are loved by bees (especially the Bumble bees), hoverflies and butterflies
