Marginal Pond Plants

Puddle Plants Indicates plants native to the UK.
Puddle Plants Indicates plants that attract the wild life.

Marginal plants are so named as they inhabit the shallower water at margins (edges) of the pond. Many marginal plants are also happy in waterlogged or wet bog areas surrounding the pond, as long as the soil doesn’t dry out during the summer or drier spells, so they overlap with the Bog garden plants and may appear in both categories of our site.

There is a huge diversity of marginal pond plants, both native and non-native: from the soft arching and elegant grasses and sedges such as Reed sweet grass and Cyperus sedge to the reeds and rushes like Small reed mace, Branched bur reed or Narrow reed mace which have a sharper upright more structured appearance; to the more ornamental Water irises and the lower growing rafting and creeping varieties such as the Water Forget-me-not (blue or white), Brooklime, Creeping jenny and everything in-between!
