This floating pond plant is hardy and dies down in the winter. The stems survive and it regrows in the spring to summer. Its delicate fern like leaves looks good floating in the pond and help to keep the water oxygenated for the fishes. It also helps to use up some of the nutrients provided by the fishes. It also tends to clump together and help support other plants. They prefer full sun, but, as here, they will tolerate some shade.
