Limnobium laevigatum 'Smooth frogbit'
plants and garden
The shiny green foliage is filled with spongy tissue for buoyancy. Juvenile plants are formed on the ends of runners. The roots make excellent cover for fry and remove nitrates, helping to prevent algae.
Growth - Medium
Height - 1cm to cm
Spread - 5cm to 20cm
Position - Full sun
Not hardy. Remove decaying plants after first frost. To overwinter, place in shallow water with a little soil for the roots to grow into. Keep in good light at above 10 °c. Return to the pond late April - May when there is no risk of frost.
Your plants will be picked and packed carefully to ensure they arrive to your door alive and fresh. Please unpack orders as soon as possible.
During the "Available Season" we aim to deliver all orders between Tuesday and Friday. According to our stock availability orders might be placed on hold until plants are in a suitable condition to be sent or in case you have placed an order out of Available Season. We will keep you informed via email about a delivery date.
Our couriers will leave orders with a neighbour or in a cool shaded area if there is no one at the address provided.
To prevent packages being held in transit over the weekend orders specifically for Highlands & Islands are dispatched Monday-Wednesday.
Please note that we only ship to the UK.
