Otherwise known as Water hawthorn but this one has no spikes and is an aquatic plant. Its pretty perfumed white flowers sit atop surface floating, emerald green foliage from April-June, and a second flush from Oct to first frosts. Grow next to water lilies and extend the time in which you can have surface flowers on your pool. Don't be alarmed if it dies right back in the summer it will reappear when the weather cools down and will start to flower again! Cut back after flowering.

Submerge pot a' 30-90cm.

Eventual height 10cm and spread 50-100cm.

Available as a 3L pot.
