A collection of plants perfect for starting a native wildlife pond.  

Waterlilies are not included here but are a good addition to any pond.  There is only one native waterlily, Nymphaea Alba, which can spread to a large area so is only really suitable for very large ponds and lakes.  Choose a waterlily based on the colour you like and a spread which suits your pond the best.  We are always happy to offer advice on the best waterlily for your situation.  

Sort these plants by type in the left hand menu to select some from each area for a perfect balanced ecosystem.
