Description
Marsilea quadrifolia is a useful oxygenating aquatic that will happily grow in the shallow margins of ponds. Clover-like leaves with 4 distinct lobes rise above the water or float on the surface, creating useful cover for wildlife. Commonly known as Water Shamrock or European Water Clover, you may be surprised that Marsilea is more closely related to ferns! Its conspicuous foliage is usually green but may turn to bronze when grown in full sun. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 100cm (39"). Planting depth: Zones 1 & 2 to 15cm (6") below water level.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

More Info
