Buy Ceratophyllum demersum hornwort: A very good oxygentator

This pond plant dies right back in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun - partial shade
  • Depth of water: 60-90cm
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Ultimate spread: indefinite
  • Height above surface: 0cm (submerged)
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    One of the most popular oxygenating plants, not not only looks attractive, but will help keep your pond free of algae. It has virtually no roots (if any), but its stems are covered in delicate-looking needle-like foliage, which absorbs carbon dioxide. They do die back in winter, but are fully hardy, so come back again each spring.

  • Garden care: Open the bundles and drop the plants into the pond on delivery. To increase numbers, break off small sections of stem and pop them back in the water.
