I have a friend looking for more options in pond plants. The nurseries around here don't have a huge selection and he feels they are expensive. I would not know because I'm totally clueless when it comes to pond plants.

But if anyone has any suggestions for great mail order sources I could pass the info on to him.

thank you

No experience with pond plants but used to get a catalog from something like "pond doctor". I've seen a few different pond plants for sale in Holland, MI but don't know if that's convenient for you.

I started getting a catalog from "The Pond Guy" a while back, for some reason (I don't have a pond, LOL), and have never ordered anything from them, but they seem to have a pretty good selection of plants. Whether or not they are comparatively expensive I couldn't say, either...

Sandy - that's the one I was trying to think of. Thanks for the correction.

I've had nice plants and good service from Texas Water Lilies. http://texaswaterlilies.com/

They have a nice variety and also had the Lotus plants I was looking for (but you can only order Lotus in the spring, I think).

Texas Water Lilies, for sure!!!!
Best quality and prices. Tremendous selection. Like Elaine said! Shipping window is kind of short in the spring, but that's just the nature of the plant, not the nursery. I am always amazed at the size tubers they send on the water lilies and lotus. shipping prices are very fair, too. Lovey dubby
