Marsh Seedbox
Gorgeous creeping herbaceous perennial with bright green oval leaves and red underneath. Small yellow flowers bloom in Spring. This beautiful aquatic plant is very versatile and can be either grown in a pot or floating / suspended in the water. It’s also fully submersible, so suitable for aquariums as well as outdoor ponds. Also known as Water Purslane and Marsh Purslane, this plant is native to North America.

Mature Height: <15cm
Mature Width:  <30cm

Position: Full Sun / Part Shade

Water Zone: 2 (for pond edges or bog areas) & 3 (0-20cm plant depth)

Preferred Soil Type: Loam, Sandy. We recommend using Grow Better Premium Potting Mix if potted. If adding plants to a pond that contains fish, we recommend using garden soil or potting mix with no added fertilisers. Then add a layer of pebbles to keep the soil from washing away.

Landscape Uses: Aquatic Garden, Aquariums, Wetlands, Bog Garden, Mass Planting, Courtyard, Container / Pot, Attracts Birds

Ongoing Care: Keep moist, particularly in dry periods. Liquid feed and mulch if in garden or pot. Slow-release fertiliser annually or as needed. We recommend Campbells Rustica Plus Fertiliser. Fertilisers not generally needed if plant is in a pond that contains live fish.
