Water Hawthorn is a spectacular plant to add to the water garden for it offers something hard to find, blooms and growth all winter long. If the pond is not frozen you will have dark green oblong leaves 3 –6 inches long. The leaves lie flat on the water surface surrounding sweet vanilla scented white flowers. You will have lots of flowers all of which will have rich dark black spots. Some say the flowers smell like hawthorn, thus the common name of Water Hawthorn. The leaves provide great coverage for your fish when most other plants are dormant. Thriving in cool to cold water, Water Hawthorn often will go completely dormant in the hot summer months, making room for your water lilies.
