Aquatic Bog Bean
A bog bean has green leaves that shoot up above the water about 9", but the spikes of star like delicate flowers white with pink accent make it a most interesting water garden plant. Because it can be an invasive plant it should be grown in containers. Plant bog beans in early spring at a maximum depth of 6". It blooms April to July, and does best in full sun to partial shde. Hardy in zones 3-10.
