This popular floating pond plant has beautiful lavender-blue flowers, with fleshy, dark green leaves. Water Hyacinths spread across the water garden providing coverage and shade and for the fish, frogs and other pond life. Water Hyacinths roots absorb nutrients from the water and provide excellent filtration, helping to prevent algae. The roots of the water hyacinths provide a hiding place for baby fish and create spawning areas for the fish. Water Hyacinth perform best in full sun, but will tolerate part shade. Water temperatures need to be 60 to 65 degrees when adding them to your pond in the spring. They will spread during the warm summer months and you can thin them out by simply netting some out of the water garden. The water hyacinth floating plant will not survive winter in colder climates. Pond owners replace them annually, for their natural ability to help keep pond water clear and fight algae. Water Hyacinths are easy to grow and are also a good choice for container water gardens.
