Marsh Marigolds (Caltha Palustris) 

Plant Description

Marsh Marigolds are from the buttercup family and have small, sunny yellow flowers that emerge in spring with green, heart shaped foliage. Marsh Marigolds are a perennial herb that spread by rhizome and can grow 10 - 16 inches tall in wetlands, marsh areas, bog areas and on banks of ponds, streams and lakes. Marsh Marigolds grow well in full sun to part shade. Marsh Marigolds can be planted directly in the ground or in containers in shallow water. (Fabric Planting Containers are an excellent choice for most aquatic, marginal plants for your pond. Convenient, easy to use and they come in different sizes. They fold down for desired height. Allows plants' roots access to oxygen for rapid growth and greater uptake of nutrients from pond water, thus helping to reduce algae.)
