Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This striking deep water aquatic is instantly recognisable. With its crown submerged in deep water, the oval, dark green leaves of the Water Hyacinth float gracefully on the surface, even remaining semi-evergreen in milder areas. From early Spring, Aponogeton distachyos flowers freely, only pausing to die back briefly in August before continuing to bloom well into Autumn. The gently scented, white blooms are held prominently at the water surface making a worthwhile display. Ideal for creating valuable shade across the surface of the water in outdoor ponds. When grown in the frost free conditions of an indoor pool, this hardy perennial may even flower throughout winter. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 120cm (48"). Planting depth: Zone 3 & 4 to 90cm (36") below water level.

Aponogeton requires little maintenance. The foliage of Water Hyacinth naturally dies back in late Summer before producing new growth in the Autumn. Trim back faded flowers to maintain a tidy appearance if desired.
Grow Aponogeton in containers of aquatic soil in deep water at a depth of between 40cm (16") and 90cm (36"). Choose a position in sun or semi-shade.
