Pontederia cordata Plugs
Pickerelweed is indigenous to much of the Americas, from Canada to Argentina. The plant thrives in wetlands, particularly near lake and pond margins as well as near rivers.
The plant makes a lovely presentation. It features heart-shaped leaves and flowers that blossom in shades of light blue to blue-violet.
This plant cultivates in landscapes. It typically is planted as part of a water feature, usually at the edge. It thrives when it is rooted in the soil beneath a layer of water between 1" to 6".
It also benefits from direct sunlight. Ideally, when planted in a location that will receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily.
The plant is suitable to nearly all locations in the Americas. The plant is rated for winter hardiness in Zones 3 through 10. The only locales in which it is not recommended are those that have consistently severe and extended winters. These include areas in the extreme north of Canada and the extreme south of Argentina.
Pickerelweed is shipped bare-root and is only a plug at time of shipment and a North American local, monocotyledonous amphibian plant. This plant develops in a mixed bag of wetlands to an expansive extent from eastern Canada south to Argentina. They grow in streams and the Everglades. This plant is a new plant that is for the most part in overwhelmed zones, so it is reliant on aerenchyma in the stem to convey oxygen to the roots. It is found in regions where the water level vacillates.
Plant these plugs near or in standing water. They need plenty of moisture to thrive well. Not getting enough moisture will result in the stunt of the growth.
