Answer: There are lots of plants you can place in your new pond. Start with Lily (of course!), Dwarf Papyrus, Panda Leaf Bamboo, Flowering Iris, Hornwort, Parrot's Feather, Umbrella Palm, Creeping Jenny, Anacharis, Purple Cabomba, and Narrow-leaf Ludwigia. You'll find many others, especially if you visit a store that specializes in aquatic plants. Here's a website with lots of information:

Best wishes with your new pond!
