Orontium is a deep marginal plant with striking yellow pokers and lush velvety leaves. Very unusual and an excellent subject for pond planting. Will grow in water 6 to 45 cm deep. Will grow in part sun to full shade. Ideal for deeper areas of the pond where other marginals may fail. Plant in a large planting basket to accommodate the roots which require a good depth of soil.
Deep water plants prefer a similar environment to waterlilies, however, they tend to be less problematical than waterlilies. Some of the varieties will tolerate moving water as well as shade.
You will receive a hardy British-grown rooted deep water plant in an 11cm pot. We recommend you re-pot the plant using premium aquatic soil and a slow-release fertiliser tab. However, you can leave in original pot for 1 year.
Submerge the plant at a shallower depth for 3-4 weeks, then place at required depth.
These plants like to be divided and re-potted every 2 years to encourage flowers. Once established feed once a year the encourage flowers.
