Hemp agrimony (Eupatorium cannabium)27th July 2018
Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria)27th July 2018
Bright green fleshy stems with black bands make this a very striking marginal pond plant! They can form large colonies in wet ground or pond margins so are best contained within baskets to keep them in check, removing any part of the rhizome that starts to grow outside the basket. They will maintain some winter interest in the pond but then should be chopped back in early spring to encourage fresh new growth. Old growth will be cut back for dispatch.
Equisetum comes from equus horse and seta a bristle hence resembling horsetails; Japonica – from Japan
Planting position: Marginal up to 30cm
Form: 9cm pots -please select size below
Recommended basket size min./ideal: 2 litre round/3.5 litre round
(Recommended basket sizes are for potting up 9cm (0.5 litre) plants only as these are supplied in solid pots. Larger sized plants are already in aquatic baskets so can go straight in the pond, however they may need potting up or splitting at some point)
