The Q&A Archives: small pond plant

Question: I'm looking for a pond plant (tiny pond is appx. 4.5 ft diameter) that won't spread and take over the pond, and that will help provide habitat for the resident frogs. I'm also away from my house for months at a time, so low maintenance is my theme! Thanks!

Answer: Dwarf Cattail (Typha minima )is perfect for small water garden ponds and containers such a half barrel tubs. This dwarf cattail grows to less than 2' tall, making it extremely well suited to small garden ponds or container gardens. Other dwarf pond plants include Hilo Beauty Dwarf Taro, Dwarf variegated Sweet Flag, Dwarf Umbrella Palm Dwarf and dwarf water lilies. Enjoy!
