Aponogeton distachyos will grow well in a sunny, partially shaded or shaded pond and flowers when no other pond plant is flowering.
Available only January - April.
Plant Aponogeton distachyos (Water Hawthorn) with between 20 - 60cm (8" and 24") of water over the top of the basket to allow the leaf and flower to grow up to the water surface.
Supplied in a 2 litre basket (15cm/6" high)
Suitable for shelf 2 or shelf 3
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 across the pond surface.
