Mare's Tail (Hippuris vulgaris)
Mare's Tail is an attractive marginal bog plant. Pleasing to the eye with soft plume-like foliage that grows above and below the water. This plant grows erect, in bottlebrush fashion and spreads quickly by rhizome. Plant in soil in containers and place on the shelves of your pond in 1 - 6 inches of water, or plant directly in the soil for mass plantings along banks of streams and lakes. Prefers full sun to part shade.
Fabric Planting Containers are an excellent choice for most of your marginal plants in the pond. Fabric Planting Containers are convenient, easy to use and come in different sizes. Can be folded down to desired height. Allows plants' roots access to oxygen, plants grow more rapidly and increase the uptake of nutrients, thus aiding in algae elimination.
