    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 attractive to bees.  

    We recommend starting your Pontederia dilitata off in a pot of 4 litres capacity. Read more on how to pot and care for your plant.
