How do I care for Water soldiers?
An unusual native plant with long, narrow and serrated leaves. Stratiotes like to have their roots in contact with the soil or mulm on the base of the pond. Most ponds containing Stratiotes seem to have clear water. Allow it to die back naturally. The old plant rots away and the young plants rise to the surface the following spring to bear small white flowers and start the cycle all over again. It's suitable for full sun to partial shade.
Please note: Due to the seasonal nature of pond plants, we reserve the right to swap the plants in your order with a similar species.
