Shallow Floating Plants & Lotus

Anyone who loves gardening can appreciate not only a great garden, but an easy garden.

Believe it or not water lilies do not like growing in shallow water areas and because this these areas become havens for algae and hot zones near the water’s surface.

In areas where marginal plants are not desired, plants that have adopted a spreading habit with floating roots and leaves can have a dramatic effect on lowering water temperatures and controlling pockets that algae growth favors.
