A British native species which is a useful plant for disguising the pond edge, having horizontal branching stems which float on the water surface. These stems put up soft, green, three-lobed leaves, and attractive white-fringed flowers in May and June. Unlike most pond plants, bog bean will grow in deep shade, but grow it in sun or part-shade for more flowers.
Because of the way this plant grows, you will receive one long rooted stem. We recommend starting your Menyanthes trifoliata off in a pot of at least 2 litres capacity, but with a wide opening of around 8 inches (20cm) across in order to accommodate the length of the stem.
