Whether you are looking for plants to add to your gravel bog filter, or if you just need some accent plants along the edge of your pond, the plants listed below are some great examples of popular plants among water gardening enthusiasts. These plants are commonly referred to by us as “bog plants”, but may also be referred to as marginals, or littoral plants.
As with any planting design, considerations for color, texture, scale, and growth habit should be included in the process of selecting your marginal plants. Click the images above for more detailed information about each plant. These are just a few of the examples of marginal plants that we carry at Nelson Water Gardens.
