Water Plants


Some plants naturally grow in waterside areas, by streams or in boggy ground, where many other plants would struggle to grow. If you have a streamside garden or a pond, try planting these unique bog plants around the edges, or in some cases in the pond itself, for an exotic and eye-catching display.
