This small yet, highly attractive marginal pond plant can be used as an edging plant or planted in groups of 3 or 5 for an undulating effect.

Gratiola oOfficinalis is a marginal perennial which is excellent for forming ground cover around pond margins and will creep over the edge to conceal any visible liner. The short, rounded stems bear, opposing pairs of leaves topped with masses of dainty white flowers, which contrast beautifully with its bright green foliage. This moisture-loving plant will create attractive 'spots' of colour or a soft edging to your water garden. Suitable for small, medium and large ponds. Available as 1L plant.
