Product Details

A MUST HAVE! Sturdy and dependable, lemon bacopa won’t let you down! It’s a winner above or below the water level — super easy to care for and perfect for a beginner!

POND FISH DON’T SNACK ON ME! While edible and safe for aquatic wildlife, lemon bacopa foliage has a strong flavor and therefore fish tend to avoid it. Instead, fish tend to utilize this plant as a means of protection, with many species of fish laying their eggs in the roots and leaves if fully submerged. If your fish have a serious case of the munchies for your pond greenery, this is the plant for you.

MOTHER NATURE KNOWS BEST! Water plants act as filters & work WONDERS for the clarity and quality of your water–naturally! They also provide excellent habitat for your prized fish and other wildlife!

BLACK THUMB FRIENDLY! Pond plants are forgiving & super simple to grow! All they need is plenty of moisture & some gravel or soil to hold roots in place! Easy as that!

100% QUALITY GUARANTEE! Our plants are grown & shipped by skilled, trusted aquatic plant experts. Your plant is guaranteed to arrive alive and healthy!

POND PLANT BIO:
It’s a dainty-flowered pond treasure! Bright periwinkle-blue flowers adorn the lemon-scented foliage of the lemon bacopa. It will thrive in a wide range of growing conditions, from moist soil as a bog plant, or in water as a floating or submerged plant. This makes it a top plant choice for wetland remediation projects. Native to the southern and southeastern United States, the Seminole Indians of Florida used lemon bacopa to treat a variety of ailments including coughs, colds, and sleeplessness.
