Aside from providing beauty, marginal plants bring plenty of other benefits to ponds and water gardens. From a filtration perspective, pond plants remove excess nutrients to starve algae from its food source. Marginal plants will add depth to the border and shape of a pond, thriving in shallow waters.
Marginal pond plants can provide a hiding place for fish from predators both above and below the water, creating shade and protection for fish.
What are the benefits of marginal plants? Marginals grow in shallow water or damp soil at the edges of ponds. They're as important as oxygenating plants for healthy pond life. Native flowering marginals are good for attracting flying insects, while their foliage will give aquatic wildlife shelter as well as habitat for laying eggs.
