- Detailed Specification
A lovely spring plant, Oenanthe javanica 'Flamingo' or Water Dropwort as it is commonly known, is usually up by March, brightening up the pond with its colour early in the year. It is grown mostly for its very attractive variegated feathery foliage (green, white and pink), although it also has clusters of small white flowers. It is unlike most pond plants in that it actually looks better in the cold weather - the pink is a striking deep rose colour in spring, fading to a soft sugar pink as the weather becomes warm, and back to deep rose again as the first cold nights come in. In addition to its good looks it is also a good user of nutrients in the pond and a provider of shade across the surface.
Trim the foliage back as necessary to keep the plant compact and fresh, is best grown in a container or at the edge of a stream of bog garden with up to 10cm (4") of water over the top of the basket in a sunny or partially shaded pond or container pond. Approximate height: 30cm
