A floating leaf, marginal aquatic perennial grown as an annual. Red and green diamond-shaped leaves in rosettes (3-6" wide) float on the surface. Watch for small cup-shaped yellow flowers (2") in summer. Very easy growers, these plants are great for surface coverage and algae elimination. They also provide protection for Koi and other fish from predators.

The 3" round clusters of small red and green leaves make the Mosaic pond plant a favorite. The diamond-shaped leaves grow from a central radius, forming a mosaic-like pattern. The mosaic plant is intolerant of alkaline water and will die if the pH is above 8. Will thrive in warm temperatures of 70º F and above, in a sunny to partly shaded location. This unusual and attractive Mosaic water plant can be placed on the surface of the water or planted as a tropical bog plant. It will spread to cover 24" in a single season.

Planting Instructions:
The plant will arrive as a bare root wrapped in wet paper. As the petals are delicate, we've found the best success in shipping the plants this way. While they may look underwhelming upon arrival, just give the plant a few weeks time after planting and you'll see why these are easily one of the most beautiful pond plants.
While it can be used as a floater, It's recommended that for Best results that the mosaics be planted as described below:

When treating the Mosaic-like a Tropical Bog, plant directly into pond and water garden planting shelves or you fill individual planting containers loosely with aquatic planting media, placing the appropriate fertilizer tablets into the bottom half of the planting media and covering them over, then filling planting media 2/3 to the top. Place the plant in the center of the pot with the roots spread out over the planting media, and then continuing to cover the roots with planting media. The crown of the plant, which is the connection between the roots and stems, can usually be about 1" below the surface of the planting media for best results. Avoid using bagged potting mix and other lightweight soils because they will float and continually cloud pond water.

In Zones 9 and lower, remove plant from pond prior to first frost and discard.

Shipping: We've found the best success in shipping these plants bare root. We send them earlier in the week to avoid lengthier shipping times caused by carriers weekend breaks. Orders placed Wed-Friday are likely to be shipped the following Monday.
