Have a Plant Party

We are excited to announce a major sale that we are having on aquatic pond plants here at Action Water Gardens! Our sale is going on RIGHT NOW and goes as followed:

If you come in within the next month and buy 5 aquatic pond plants, receive a 5” square pot of Chameleon Plant for free!

Now you might be currently be asking yourself, why do I need aquatic plants for my pond and especially THAT many?! And if I do want plants how would I even know which ones to choose?! The answer is simple-when making considerations for plants for ponds; it helps to understand that different plants provide different functions in a pond. Pond plants can be roughly divided into three main categories: submerged, emergent, and floating. Each group of these plants for ponds provides different general functions within their environment.

Submerged plants are those that are completely underwater and they help add oxygen to the water, provide cover for a variety of small animals from invertebrates to small fish.

Emergent plants are those which are rooted underwater and whose leaves and/or flowers break the surface of the water. This group provides food and cover for small fish, amphibians, birds and even small mammals.

Floating plants are those which float freely on the surface of the water. This group of plants helps provide shade for the pond during warmer times of the year (helping regulate water temperature) and also can provide a source of food for waterfowl and fish species.

Planting species from all three categories helps to create a sustainable pond ecosystem that works together to provide the most benefits for people and wildlife and we here at Action have plants in all three categories and are more than able to help assist you with making your personalized selection for your pond!
