Four Leaf Clover

Four Leaf Clover

(Marsilea quadrafolia) Four Leaf Clover is an easy aquatic plant. It will grow underwater of grow leaves to the surface If the water is shallow enough. It will stay pretty low if the water is deep enough. It can be used as a pond plant, Marginal plant or a Bog plant as well. It is not picky about water parameters and will thrive in cool water or tropical tanks. It needs Medium Lighting to do best. This is a 2X2" section of roots as shown in the picture of fully submerged Marsilea. It will adapt quickly to your tank or to a pond, marginal or bog situation as well. Most people have trouble with this plant when they get it, as it is usually grown fully emersed and will kind of die back when put under water. Not with ours, as we grow it underwater and it will easily adapt to emersed without major leaf death.

Yellow-eyed Grass medium

Yellow-eyed Grass medium

(Xyris serotina) This is an amazing looking plant. Despite it's common name, it is NOT a True grass. It is a perennial, so it will come back year after year. It prefers to be in zone 5 or higher, but it will do well if potted and moved indoors for winter. It has wide leaves in a dull green, with both purple and reddish spots and highlights. The flower comes up from a main leaf as a thin, but strong tubular stalk that ends in a purple " pine-cone." From this pine cone, a 3 petaled Bright yellow flower opens in the morning and is closed by evening to barely show its yellow petals. This plant loves wet boggy soil and an acid planting medium is appreciated, but not absolutely necessary. It can withstand almost full sun to almost complete shade, with moderately diffused sunlight being its favorite. Medium sized specimens that will fit in a 4 inch pot and fill it out fairly quickly
