    Very nice plant

    Posted by Christopher Maleby on Aug 8th 2017

    I bought this plant after seeing one at our local pond store that wanted more than 5 times the amount for a little more than a 18 inch tall plant . Knowing that I wanted to add it to my pond I bought this one and it arrived as 12 inch starter plant that I potted in a pot and placed on one of the ponds corner shelves and it has since started to grow and steadily adding on new growth .
