Bog Bean (Menyanthes trifoliata)

A rambling plant with trifoliate olive-green foliage that creeps over the surface of the water. The attractive white flowers are tipped with pink. An infusion of the roots used to be used as a tonic for fevers, gout and other complaints

Plant in full sun to partial shade between 1cm and 20cm deep.
