Water hawthorn (Aponogeton distachyos) has dark green eliptical leaves and pretty highly perfumed white flowers with purple anthers held just above the water. They compliment water lilies beautifully, extending the flowering season both before and after. Flowers March/April-June then September to first frosts, and may continue to flower in the summer if shaded by lilies. Tolerates moving water and very happy in part of full shade. Don’t be alarmed if the Water Hawthorn dies back in the summer it will reappear when the weather cools down and will start to flower again!
