A marginal plant which produces simple white arum-like flowers in May/June, followed by bright red berries in autumn. It has heart-shaped glossy mid-green leaves, and spreads on long creeping stems, therefore making a decent sized clump fairly quickly. It thrives in shallow water, making it one of the best plants for softening the pond's edge with its lush greenery. Unlike many pond plants, it will grow and even flower in deep shade, although planting in sun or part shade will result in more flowers. Once established this plant will make you want to extend the range 'tropical looking' plants around the pool for a stunning foliage effect

Available as 3L plant.
