This is an unusual deep-water aquatic which forms a large clump of blue-green pointed leaves on or just above the water surface. In late spring/early summer it produces unusual white poker-like flowers tipped with bright yellow, which stand proud of the water. It is clump-forming and extremely slow-growing, so good if you are concerned about plants spreading. 

If designing a planting scheme, we recommend approximately 2 Orontium aquaticum plants per square foot of ground, or 1 plant per linear foot of pond edge. Read more here on how to pot and care for your plant.
