Product Overview

Arrow Arum or Peltandra virginica, is an attractive native aquatic plant that is great for ponds. The dark green glossy arrowhead shaped leaves make for a beautiful background edge plant or specimen plant in a pond. Very reliable bloomer, although it is grown more for its foliage.
  • Very hardy perennial from zones 5 - 10, very desirable due to its "clumping" nature making it easy to control and maintain, slow to mature and can reach heights up to 2 ft. - 3 ft.
  • Relatively insignificant yellow-green flowers are reliable and will produce many dark purple seeds which are enjoyed by many forms of wildlife, especially ducks
  • Will thrive in sunny to shady light conditions which makes it versatile when planting
  • Having a bog plant already planted in aquatic soil provides a big advantage in terms of an established root system which makes the transition into your pond very easy and reduces the risk of failure

Does this plant have to be brought in during the winter months or can you leave it in the pond?

Asked by Angel September 8, 2019

Answer

Hi Angel! That is a great question. If you are in northern areas where extreme cold temperatures are likely, you may want to bring this plant inside for a few months and keep in a tub of water. It can take some pretty cold temperatures and most folks will only need to drop the plant, pot and all, to the bottom of your pond where it will be most insulated from possible freezing. It is a very hardy plant.

My plant arrived very limp and brown. I plucked off the dead leaves down to the main stem hoping for it to come back, and it’s finally showing some sign of life. We’ll see how it does.

I have plants submerged in a 5 gallon pail awaiting a permit planting. Plant seems a little small compared to those I see at the local creek. I will transplant soon and pray the turtles don't eat.
