Deep water plants are alternatives to lilies for the deeper area of the pond. Deep water plants will provide leaf cover and shade to the water, to the benefit of fish and other pond wildlife.
Deep water plants provide value to pond owners with deep enough ponds as they can add shelter to fish, add oxygen, remove nitrates and provide visual interest. While not essential in a pond, they do add character. Deep water pond plants will typically be fully submerged in a pond, and are ideal for pondkeepers with ponds of greater depth.
Where do you plant deep water pond plants? Deep Water Plants are best placed in still water away from constant splashing and flow from the likes of fountains and waterfalls. They grow best in full sun but can tolerate some shade. When placing Deep Water Plants into the pond make sure to lower them in stages to allow the plant to acclimatize to its new depth, this way the leaves can stretch to the surface during each stage of the descent.
