good pond plants?
We just built a 2 level pond in our backyard, we live in california we dont have any shade trees or plants around it. wat are some good plants or trees that we can put around it???
Answer by weather
elephant ears are great. evergreen in areas with out frost. perrenial in areas with frost. grows very large and large leaves that look like elephant ears. can stand in 4 inches of water.
cannas. are also great. some sun will make flowers on the plant and the plant will give a tropical look as well as a nice look to any pond. evergreen in frost free areas. perennial in frost aeas.
also water lilies.
hardy veiety is great sperads fast and will cover a pond with blooms.
also some nice trees are
rubber tree. this one is a ficus that is cold tollerant to 20 so northern california and areas far from the coast this is an annual.
canary island date palm
pretty cold tollerant cold hardy to 15. large leaves and a good shade tree.
olive. southern califonia only. this is really nice for color and a nice look near pond. doesnt tolerate water so make it far from the actual pond
gardenia. fragrant flowers and nice color. likes water so not bad for ponds. gadenia tree grows pretty tall.
