Very attractive plant for cooler water in the fall, winter, and spring. Flowers in the spring and again in the fall. In southern climates, Water Hawthorn will often bloom all winter long, from September to June. Water Hawthorne extends the season of flowers in the pond, blooming before water lilies in the spring and flowering again in the fall after water lilies have finished blooming. Blooms are white with black stamens and have a vanilla fragrance. The foliage is elliptical, shiny, and dark green, sometimes with a tinge of purple. Blooms are 1-2 inches above the water surface. It grows in sun to part shade in water from 6 inches to 4 feet deep with a spread of about 24-36 inches. Water Hawthorne is hardy in cold water and can withstand a freeze, needing no particular winter care or attention. It goes dormant in the summer months.

It is best to plant water hawthorn in loam soil and place in your pond at water depths between 6 and 24 inches. Does best in an area with full sun exposure. Fertilize monthly, and discontinue when it's time for the water hawthorn to go dormant.
