Product Information

Butomus Umbellatus Schneeweibchen is a Flowering rush, a rush-like, marginal plant with rich green leaves that turn bronze-purple and then dark green as they extend. These pond plants also have umbels of many cup-shaped fragrant white flowers held high above the water. They are highly suitable for ponds and lakes in full sun, will not flower if pot bounce, grow to a height of 120 cm and a water depth of 10-20 cm over the rhizome.

Aquatic Soil

Aquatic soil is heavy in weight an will therefore increase the cost of postage and packing. Heavy sand or clay based top soil from your back garden will make a fine planting substrate, molehill soil is even better. NEVER use peat based soil or your plants will float up out of your newly planted baskets/planting bags.

Aquatic Top Gravel

Aquatic gravel is heavy in weight and will therefore increase the cost of postage and packing. Top gravel is used as a decorative finish or as an added protection and deterrent to inquisitive/plant destructive koi-carp and other large fish. We only sell 4-6mm grade aquatic gravel as any grade larger will inhibit plant growth. NEVER place large pebbles or stones on top of your Aquatic Planting Baskets
