Overview

The Water Poppy may be one of nature's most elegant floating plants. With its dark green, heart-shaped leaves and often abundant scattering of quaint yellow flowers, this floating plant adds a compelling carpet of foliage and visual depth to any pond's edge.

Native to tropical climates, the Water Poppy is a fairly fast growing plant that develops thick, shiny leaves approximately 2" to 4" wide along long, trailing stems. It has short-lived, almost cup-shaped flowers with a contrasting red and brown center that stretch 2 to 2-1/2" above the water's surface. The flowers bloom between June and August, though the plant thrives year-round in warmer climates.

For optimal growth, the Water Poppy prefers rich soil in shallow waters of 6" or less, though most plants survive in water up to 12" deep. Even in warmer regions, this plant may benefit from over-wintering indoors in a shallow tub with good light, as it is susceptible to even brief frost exposure. Like other floating plants, the Water Poppy helps shade your pond and fish and creates a safe haven and spawning area protected from birds and other predators. Zones 8 to 11.

Approximate Purchase Size: 4" to 6"
