Water Lilies

Water lilies are a necessary pond plants in Oklahoma. They provide shade during the hot Oklahoma City summer months and also provide shelter for your koi.

The tropical varieties offer color variations that are second to none. We even carry a night blooming water lily. In addition to that, we have color changing water lilies that actually change color over the course of the season. Never a dull moment with pond plants in Oklahoma City. By the way, water lilies like to be planted two feet deep in the pond and placed at the furthest point from the waterfalls. They don’t like a lot of water movement.

Plants for Ponds

There are many more plants for ponds offered by us. We offer pond plants that of varying heights. The plants for ponds are referred to as marginal pond plants. Marginal means that pond owners will usually just plant them along the ponds edges and around the waterfalls.

Most of our marginal pond plants are winter hardy in Oklahoma. The marginal plants for ponds have numerous different colored blooms. There is literally every color under the rainbow. We can show pond owners how to group pond plants for the most appealing landscaping looks in their ponds.

Floating Plant Islands and Floating / Submersible Plants

A fun way to add more marginal pond plants to your pond when you feel that there just isn’t any more room, is to add a floating plant island. We have these planted and ready to go for you.

Last but not least are floating and submersible plants for ponds. They are exactly like they sound, floating or submersible. The most popular floating pond plants are Water Hyanthis and Water Lettuce.

The water Hyanthis are the most popular of the two in Oklahoma because of their vibrant lilac colored blooms. These pond plants do an excellent job of helping to filter the pond water because of their ability to absorb tons of nutrients in the pond. Submersible plants for ponds are a great way to offer shelter to your koi fish as they lay eggs. They tend to be great oxygenators also.

Pond plants are not just meant for decorative koi ponds, they are necessary for farm ponds and retention ponds also.

Aquatic pond plants are the foundation of your new fish pool, helping to balance your entire pond ecosystem. Valuable pond filtration is provided through the removal of nitrogen, ammonia, nitrates and other minerals that can lead to unsightly water conditions in your fish pool.

Aquatic pond plants also provide extensive beauty, quickly naturalizing the environment and softening the edges while providing shelter and shade for your Koi fish. Fish pools that containing aquatic pond plants are more likely to have clear water, minimal waste, healthy koi fish, sufficient oxygen and a natural look.

Types of pond plants for fish pools.

Aquatic pond plants are grouped into two basic categories: tropical pond plants and hardy pond plants. Hardy plants are able to over-winter in colder climates, allowing you to enjoy them year after year. Tropical plants, on the other hand, are more suited for warmer climates and often used as annuals in colder climate zones. Most hardy and tropical pond plants can be categorized into four categories: water lilies, marginal pond plants, floating pond plants and oxygenators.

We carry a wide variety of aquatic pond plants that thrive in a wet environment and add TONS of color to your fish pools!

Our aquatic planters will not crack or break like traditional plastic planters. Made from fine, porous material, our aquatic planters allow water to penetrate while preventing soil from entering your fish pool. The incredible flexibility makes it easy to place plants between rocks and other tight spaces, and the dark color allows the planter to easily blend into your fish pool.

Pond Plant Potting Media

When it comes time to pot your new aquatic pond plants, we recommend using a potting media specially formulated for aquatic plants. You shouldn’t use just any media as it could be harmful to your fish pool and contribute to algae blooms.
