You can plant virtually all manner of pond plants in our patented Floating Islands from small to large, even lotus. And they can be used year after year making them a good long-term investment for your pond. They survive the winterice and are storable in the pond.
Floating Island Planters add dramatic accents to the pond, provide shade and cover for fish and help improve water quality via the dangling roots underneath that consume nutrients. Predrilled holes let water in and roots out. A pond is not required since Floating Islands are also great for patio and deck container gardens.
Carnivorous plants are especially happy in the Floating Islands because they have the optimum water level at all times. You don't need to feed or water them so they make the ultimate low maintenance garden. As we expected, carnivorous plants aren’t the only plants that have thrived in the island gardens. We have also successfully planted the islands with aquarium plants, ferns, moisture-loving annuals, perennials, grasses and even houseplants. Everything from Ipomea to Dwarf Taxodium!
