PIK's #1 Most Popular Pond Plant

These water-loving beauties produce gorgeous lavender-blue flowers that are ideal for creating a cheerful aquatic garden or livening up your favorite feature. Noted for their prominent lavender-blue flowers and fleshy, rounded, floating leaves, water hyacinth grows quickly in warm water. Plants propagate readily from leaf shoots which develop into new plants, called pups.

Where it can be grown legally, it is a welcome addition to the water garden for its ability to filter out unwanted nutrients and for its attractive flowers. Although each flower lasts only a day or two, they are borne in abundance.

Water Hyacinth provides many natural benefits to your pond:
  • Water Hyacinth provides great natural protection and cover for your koi from heron and other predators.
  • These oxygenating plants keep the water clean and filtered in your water garden.
  • They serve as natural biofilters to your pond
  • Controls algae by absorbing nutrients from the water

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 may ship 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. 

Don't forget: Many PIK customers enjoy using the Nycon Floating Plant Islands to help control the growth of the Water Hyacinth and help prevent them from floating away.
