Water lilies - the crowning jewel of any pond
Look at any great pond space and you might notice that almost all of them feature at least one water lily. Delicate blooms sitting majestically across a spread of deep green and mottled purple foliage - it's a sight to behold, and one that never gets old!
Benefits and impact
Perhaps the one plant that can singularly make the most impact in the water, it's easy to see why water lilies are one of the most popular choices for pond owners.
They don't just look great either - they also attract pollinators, provide much needed coverage via their coloured foliage, help regulate the sunlight reaching the pond floor, and some of them can even be used medicinally for a range of health benefits.
Coming in a wide variety of colours and sizes, the diverse 'nymphaea' can be suited to anything from small water tub containers, all the way to large lakes.
