Customer Questions & Answers

is this plant fragrant

Asked by: keesler
The flower of this plant is not fragrant. If the plant is handled and the leaves crushed, there is a pungent fragrance. This Red Stemmed version of Lizard's Tail is grown more for its vibrant red stem and unusual long white flowers than it is for its fragrance.

do i just put it in the bottom of the pond?

just wanted to know do I put it "IN" the pond or just like at the rim of the pot. I got this for my dad's new pond and not sure if the location is right, the whole pond is in full shade and I don't want to drown it.
Asked by: danny
Danny, the Lizards Tail you got your dad is a very versatile and hardy bog plant. It will do fine in the shade and in varying depths of water. I would start it out along the edge of the pond with the top of the pot at the pond's surface. After a few weeks you can lower it to a depth of 2 - 4 inches below the surface. This plant will spread easily and has an attractive white spike-like flower. Enjoy!

what happens when plant does not grow?

I have bought many pond plants and seem they don't grow some do start with leaves but then nothing. says guaranteed to grow but no one takes responsibility to honor .
Asked by: john
There is usually a reason why pond plants do not grow., sometimes several reasons. It is difficult to answer this question without more information. Some reasons are: chemical warfare-using algecides to eliminate algae can harm other plants; too much moving water-some plants don't like a lot; lack of sunlight-too much shade and more... One of my guidelines is: if my fish are healthy, my water clarity is good and my plants are living, just enjoy! Hope this helps...
