A delicate plant of winter-wet swamps, it is often not noticed until the starry white flowers appear in Spring.



Plant in moist ground on the low side of a pond, or in the pond. In a pond up to 50cm deep, it's easiest to leave the plant in the pot, with the top of the pot level with the waters surface. It spreads slowly but will not dominate.
