Marginal plants

Plants along the banks of watercourses can tolerate short-term flooding. Marginal plants prefer moist, nutrient-rich soil and higher humidity. The best place for the following plants to grow is directly on the water’s edge or a few centimetres above it.

Pond plants help to design a garden


Plants that surround the artificial water feature soften the shoreline and help it to blend in with other parts of the garden. If the reservoir is isolated from the rest of the soil, perennial crops that otherwise prefer semi-sheltered growing conditions will grow well.

NB! All here offered marginal plants, tolerate our cold climate. The potted plants growing in water or dry land should moved to a deeper water or placed to a cool cellar for the winter period. You will find specific note under these plants.
