Special Note Regarding Invasive Species
Rules and regulations are changing for selling water plants because of environmental concerns should they be released into the wild. Each agricultural county may have rules concerning plant ratings that differ from in the past. We will do our best to stay abreast of the changes but please be aware that our list may offer plants that come under restriction in your county.
Most important is not to release plants into the wild
Please compost or properly dispose of whole plants or plant parts when you are dividing, detailing, or removing from the pond.
