I have an excess of pond plants if anyone needs any. I am in Weaver, Al.
I can use some. I enlarged my pond to 6000 gallons last month and it looks barren. I am in Saks.
Let's get together.
What kind do you have? Maybe we could trade? I'm in Talladega.I have miniature water hyacinths,taro,cattails,Chromatella water lily,water celery.Email me if you have different Jan
I have lots of pickerel, urmbrella plant, large water hyacinths,some grasses that I don't know the names of, and a pretty small-leafed blue flowering shallow water plant that spreads vociferously!
Perhaps you could attach a picture of the one that spreads prolifically so that we could ID it. Sounds like it might be a troublemaker. Some of the invasive aquatics are illegal (Alabama law and/or Federal law) if your pond opens up to a public water source or can over flow to a public water source. Especially one that is vociferous! (smile)
Here is a link that might be useful: This is kinda interesting....
This is a passalong plant from jpwill a couple of years ago. It's prolific but not a trouble maker ;-)
Leaves are opposite, about 1" in length. The flowers are about 1/2" in diameter.
Thanks, Terramadre, that's the one! It is very pretty! I bought it at Smith and Hawkins in Birmingham several years ago, a tiny plant at the time. I asked "Will one of these be enough?" and the lady smiled and said "Believe me, it will be enough." I wish I knew the name of it.
if you mite have anything left...i would love some, it doesnt matter what it is.
Not beeing sure that this plant is Bacopa caroliniana, I posted a pic on the Name That Plant Forum. It does seem to be Bacopa caroliniana. Info on the web is conflicting.
Just realized I used the wrong word--vociferous--when I meant prolific. And I'm an English teacher!!! I haven't heard any "noise" from the plant, although it might be considered "boisterous" (one of the meanings of vociferous.)
I've given away all the pond plants. I'm sure I'll have more next year.
Got mine. Thanks a lot.
