Shallow Water and Bog Plants
(please click on any plant name to view a photo and description)

In their natural environments, shallow water and bog plants grow at the water's edge. This group of plants include irises, cannas, papyruses, pickerel plants, water poppies and parrot feather. For the taller members of this group, it is essential to select a large, flat and heavy container to prevent the wind from tipping them over. A fourteen to sixteen quart tub should be sufficient. Use a mixture of four parts of good garden soil to one part composted cow manure. Fill the container half full and add one cup (8 oz.) of 10-10-10 fertilizer per bushel of soil and mix thoroughly. Fill container to within two inches of the top. Plant shallow water and bog plants upright. Firm soil around the plants and add one inch of washed sand or gravel. Lower into pool to a depth of two to six inches.
