I bought this plant on 21 March 2009 to grow in my small pond with Typha minima (and with Caltha palustis alongside). It has already spread about a meter and the first flowers were out today. It's looking very healthy and is very popular with hoverflies. I chose it because it's native and will provide some shade for the wildlife I hope to attract.

Hi, Georgie!
Wow, that spread quickly! Let me know if you and when you have to remove some of it due to overcrowding - I would love to know more about growing it!
Thanks!
Kathy C.

Hi Kathy

I noticed today that the trailing bits are rooting in the water. I think I might be able to set up a sideline selling the stuff at this rate! :D Here's a pic of the first tiny flowers.
