    This magnificent species is the giant of the family, fantastic for the larger pond. The flowers are a softer blue than those of the common pickerel plant, Pontederia cordata, and are produced in great quantities in late summer. Like all the pickerel plants, the flowers are very attractive to bees.  

    If designing a planting scheme, we recommend approximately 1 Pontederia dilatata plant per 1½ square feet of ground or per 1½ linear feet of pond edge. Read more here on how to pot and care for your plant.
