Floating Pond Plants add interest and beauty to any pond. We offer a varied selection of floating pond plants including some lovely flowering varieties. Floating pond plants create necessary shade for pond water, which in turn combats algae outbreaks. They also offer necessary cover for fish that helps protect them from predators. They compliment water lilies particularly well, because their leaves and flowers are smaller and thus mingle quite gracefully with them. Pairing a Yellow Snowflake with a purple water lily like Director George Moore, is just stunning. The combinations are endless, so play with it. See our Tropical and Hardy Water lilies. Hyacinth and Water Lettuce are our most popular 'floaters' for good reason: both are excellent natural water filters because their roots are so long and dense. They grow and multiply quickly, creating even more filtration and necessary shade for fish in the summer. Be sure to check the 'Details' on our site for state imposed shipping restrictions on these however, since some states have banned them due to their invasive nature. If you have naughty fish that decimate your floating plants, a plant protector will keep them at bay. See our Planting Supplies section.
