Pond plants are important for the health of your pond and add lovely colour. Plants such as water lilies and floating plants add glamour to the water with their stunning appearance. Oxygenating aquatic plants are the most important ones for the pond. If the water conditions are right, they clarify the pond. This lets you enjoy the underwater life all the time. These plants also keep algae out of the pond. Waterside plants and marsh plants are often used to conceal the edge with beautiful colours. All of these pond plants add up to an ideal pond.
