  • Aponogeton distachyos (Water Hawthorn)
  • Oval floating leaf 15cm (6") long and scented white flowers with black markings that float on deeper water

Water Hawthorn disappears completely from view in the summer months and returns to growth as the water temperature cools. Please do not throw away a dormant basket of Aponogeton distachyos in the summer thinking it has died. This deep water pond plant is a good complement to summer flowering waterlilies to give surface cover early in the year.

I looked at a few sites before I chose this company. An excellent choice all the plants were really well packed and look lovely in my pond. Would definitely buy from them again.
