Water Plants for my Pond
Here is the website I ordered the plants from: http://www.thewatergardenshop.com/water-plants.html
The company is in Oregon and I chose it because shipping would be fast from a state so close. I also really appreciated that they had plants that would be hardy in zone 4, that would also tolerate part shade. I have not had any luck growing water lilies in the past. We will see how these plants do. If they thrive - I may try a shade tolerant hardy water lily from this same company. Or - if they thrive - maybe I won't need to try a water lily!
For potting soil - I used all natural unscented kitty litter, which is just clay soil. I topped the pots with an inch of pea gravel.
