2020 RSF Water Plant List 

These plants will be in stock mid April through the summer, with the best selection in April and May.  Some plants may be out of stock at any given time.

Marginals Marginal water plants grow in shallow water or in moist soil around the perimeter of the water garden. The largest selection of water plants falls within this group.
Floater These water plants float freely on the surface of the water garden. Floaters help reduce algae by competing with nutrients, shading the water to help keep it cool, and by lowering the amount of light that penetrates into the water. Most floaters are tropical and should be removed from the pond and composted with the onset of winter and the arrival of the first frost.
Oxgenators This group of water plants grows beneath the surface of the water. The name “oxygenators” is also used for them because they release oxygen into the water during the day as a process of photosynthesis. The primary function of these plants is to remove excess nutrients from the pond, thereby reducing the growth of algae. They also provide spawning areas and protective cover for fish.
