Flowers, Scented flowers
A fascinating South African aquatic plant which seems to flower unpredictably. The waxy white and purple blooms are very sweetly scented, and the first flush appears from mid-spring onwards with a break in mid-summer. During a mild winter they may continue to appear intermittently. In deeper water the dormant plants survive the winter at the bottom of the pond, but where winters are severe it is a good idea to lift baskets and overwinter the plants indoors.

These are great plants and provide good. Cover for my fish. Need to be kept in check as they spread ve ry rapidly. Great for giving to friends.
These are delightful plants, scented and pretty as well as useful cover for the fish. Mine have survived several days frozen in a layer of ice and they seed very freely so you only need to buy one to cover the pond.
