Floating Hearts


 US Native(Nymphoides peltata)Floating-heart forms a floating carpet of foliage and flowers on the surface of the water. It also makes a nice substitute for water lilies in small pools and tubs where water lilies would look out of place. The bright yellow flowers of the floating-heart appear quite early in spring and continue through summer. The rounded, heart-shaped leaves look much like water lily leaves but on a smaller scale, as they only get about 3 inches across. Floating-heart is an EASY pond plant and thrives in sun or partial shade. Cover its crown with 4 to 12 inches of water.It can go to about 2 feet deep but allow the leaves to reach the surface before carrying it deeper than 12 inches In colder zones, make sure to sink its pot to the bottom of the pool, as its roots should not be allowed to freeze.

these can also be used ina vivarim or terrarium or as a bog plant as they will grow emersed and stay low to the ground and trail forward. They will not bloom if grown emersed BUT they doi look cool.

These are young plants from seed but are on their second year of growth and will bloom very shortly.. Plants will be shipped bare root.
