Beginner Plants for Water Gardens 



Top 3 beginners plants for water gardens 

 Jewelweed Plants


 These plants are annuals but grow well in water gardens as they love water. Jewelweed plants grow well with partial or well-shaded areas and need little care. 

 The water needs to be watched for clarity and, if necessary, changed every week. These plants love mulch so fertilize the water if necessary if you are changing it. 

 Though jewelweed plants are annuals, these plants are self-sowing, throwing seed efficiently and productively in all directions. The seed pods are known to burst in a bomb-like way, scattering seeds upon the human touch of the pods. Thus, they reproduce themselves quickly. The closer together the seed is sown, the taller the plants and the better they grow.

 What is nice about these plants is how they bloom from early spring right through the summer until early fall, not just one small time frame, with golden orange or yellow blossoms. 

 Another feature of these plants, also known as impatience capensis, is to help treat the poison ivy rash. The leaves and stem are used to rid and alleviate the rash. The plant is used for soap and other herbal remedies.


 Blue Flag Iris Plants


 These plants are known as water plants, also known as flags, that grow easily in water gardens. They should be planted on a water ledge six inches deep the plant against the wall of the container to allow the root to spread;

 the Blue Flag Iris Plants bloom from May until the end of July. Their blooms range in color from white to nearly black because of spontaneous changes in gardens and breeding for the color. There are over twenty varieties. But the general plant has blue-purple petals with lighter areas in the deeper part of the petal.

 All dead parts of The Blue Flag Iris Plants, after blooming, should be removed, and before winter, the plant should be cut down to one to two inches above the water. In many cases, this is all that is required. If in extreme cold, the plant can be submerged in water for winter and brought back up to six inches showing from the top of the water when the ice melts.


 Cattail Plants


 The common cattail plant is growing around the world. Its formal name is Typha Latifolia. They are easy to grow and do good in many different areas. These plants are known for their healing properties and have been eaten and used in recipes. Do not eat if they have been in polluted ponds as they absorb bad bits.

 They need full sun to partial shade all year. They like warm and humid climates. Plant the Cattail Plants in clay pots as the clay pot is heavy enough to hold the tall plants down. After planting, put the clay pot into the water container. They don’t need any more care.

 These blooms do not have petals, but brown stems, the male bloom on top of the female.
