The best aquatic plant for the pond

A popular and according to Simon also the aquatic plant for the pond is the yellow lis(Iris pseudacorus), this is a yellow aquatic plant that can grow about 80 cm high. The special feature of this pond plant is that the roots of the Iris filter nitrates and nitrites from the water. The plant absorbs waste products and ensures that the water becomes clear. The yellow iris is also a hardy pond plant.

Aquatic plant advice from the pond specialist

Aquatic plants are essential in any pond. In the right amount, they ensure that you don't need a filter or pump. Through our years of experience, we know exactly how much aquatic plants each pond needs. All tips on pond construction, pond decoration and also pond maintenance can be found on our pond advice page.

Frequently asked questions about aquatic plants

Native water plants are available at Van der Velde Waterplanten. You can easily order the water plants and pay safely online. All water plant species are grown organically and are supplied from our own water plant nursery in the Netherlands.

You can buy aquatic plants from us all year round. All species are hardy. Planting aquatic plants is possible as long as there is no ice on the water, because then it is quite difficult to place.

To achieve biological balance in a pond, you need at least 4 different types of aquatic plants: water lilies to keep the sun out of the pond, oxygen plants to release oxygen underwater, marsh plants to create a natural plant filter, and aquatic plants that purify the water with their roots.

This is helpful if you have just built a pond. We sell complete water planting kits that include everything you need to get a clear pond naturally. Check out our complete water plant packages for different ponds.

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as special aquatic plants against algae. It is a combination of the right pond plants that ensures that algae growth has less chance. Water lilies keep the sun out of the water so that algae will grow less quickly. Oxygen plants in baskets are often used in shallow areas of the pond to also prevent algae growth. The right combination and amount of plants you need per square meter is mentioned in Simon's pond planting plan.
