Floating Plants

Floating plants help keep water clear and free of algae. They shade the water to reduce light and they remove nitrates essential for algae growth. They help protect fish from predators such as herons by providing cover and the roots are a great place for fish and wildlife to lay their eggs. They spread by sending runners to form young plants. Ideally one to two thirds of the ponds surface should be covered with shade plants.
