Rush Pond Plants

     Rush pond plants are characterized by their unique grass stems. Some of the pond plants contain nots in the stem or at the end which will give your pond a unique look. Rush tend to be smaller than cattail and therefore they are a good filler plant. For more information regarding the details read below.

     These rush variety pond plants require full soil to grow, top soil mixed with a clay-based soil is preferred. The clay-based soil is added to increase the soil's overall density. The pond plants we sell have anchor roots which require a more dense soil in order to latch on. These pond plants are found in marsh/swamp areas which means they don't require full sunlight, and that they shouldn't be flooded with water. Planting them too deep will drown any offspring and potentially restrict sunlight in certain areas of the pond plant. The crown should be no more than 2-3 inches below the water surface. If you have are using a container then be sure to account for the height of the container (Example: Aquatic Mint planted in a one gallon pot, 6 inches high, should be placed no more than 9 inches below the water surface). Bricks and/or upside down pots can be used to prop up the pond plants.

1 Gal (8" x 6")


    The one gallon planting container is recommended for everything we sell (except water lilies). For spacing purposes we recommend one pond plant per container. Gravel is recommend as media to anchor the dirt. Lastly we suggest that fertilizer be used, two per container.
