Did you know: Water hyacinth is a free-floating perennial aquatic plant (or hydrophyte) native to tropical and sub-tropical South America.
Shipping Expectations: Minimum order quantity for shipping = 6. No minimum quantity for in-store purchases. Please note that there is a very good chance of you receiving Hyacinths without flowers. With proper care, some heat, and a little luck, the Hyacinths will flower. This plant ships with trimmed roots as sometimes they tend to fall off during transit due to heat. In case roots fall off upon receiving them, just place them in your pond and give them a couple of weeks so they can re-establish themselves. We've found the best success in shipping these when 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.

I highly recommend Play it Koi. I ordered late on a Monday and the Hyacinths arrived at my door Friday morning! I was happily surprised. The plants are beautiful, healthy and vibrant. They are all fully rooted and of good size. And they were carefully packaged so as not to dry out or sustain damage during shipping. I am very impressed with the quality of the plants and the care with which they were shipped. I order pond plants every year and have tried many different companies. I am so glad to have found Play it Koi. This company obviously values their product and their customers.
Your plants are large, healthy, green and moist when they arrive. I read where having water plants in your pond decreases the algae growth and that’s the goal.
On time, healthy, nice packaging well done for live plants. Very happy and would order again. bobj
I bought some of these last year and they worked out well. I bought another batch this year and they arrived very fast and in good shape. I plan on buying from this vendor every spring.
