Garden Affair : Ornamental Aquatic Plants

 It is fascinating to grow plants in water .This is evident that presence of water plant adds charm in the Garden and helps in maintaining moisture level in the Garden .While the Flowering aquatic plants like lily and lotus needs proper sunlight and care for blooms. There are many aquatic ornamental plants that doesn't bear flowers but there beautiful ornamental leaves add to so much beauty in to the Garden .

I have been growing  few varieties of these ornamental aquatic plants from quite years now .

This is a pennywort plant it is said so due to resemblance of leaves  with Penny or coin 


Aquatic Cypres Plant 

This beautiful thin stems plant sends new stems throughout the year which bears inflorescence on the head .

There are many other ornamental aquatic  plants like Pistia ,Salvinia which can be also grown in the shade for adding beauty in the Garden.
