Unique and Unusual Water Garden Plants to Add to Your Collection

Water garden plants are prevalent, not only because water gardens are aesthetically pleasing but in addition because water plants increase the biodiversity of the local ecosystem; such plants help mitigate flood areas and also tend to prevent a water garden from becoming stale and stagnant as they reduce the number of nutrients that enter your water garden, thus preventing your beautiful water garden from becoming a stinky mess.

Treenurseryco.com, the nation's largest mail-order nursery, sells many water garden plants to help you control your environment and boost biodiversity.

Water Garden Plants fall into three general categories: submerged plants, floating plants, and Cattail Plants, the latter referring to plants that have their roots submerged but their foliage rising above the surface.

From our perspective, the vast majority of plants that people purchase for water gardens are those of either a floating or an emerging variety.

Generally, those with water gardens want to purchase

Of the floating variety, far and away, one of the most popular purchases is our water garden plant packages.

Here you get nine water garden plants, most floating, for very little money.

Depending upon the size of your water garden, you will generally need at least two of these packages to propagate your water garden.

As for your emerging plants, consider purchasing a Three-Square Hedge package, Square Stem Bulrush package, or soft stem bulrush or Common Spike Rush package.

To have a diverse and pleasing water garden, you generally need both types of plants to provide your water garden with the aesthetics you want and the emerging plants to control the garden from flooding and keep your water reasonably clean.

Treenurseryco.com has many grass and floating plants to make your water garden a true oasis of serenity.
