Marsilea mutica

Beautiful, small (max. 3") leaves that float directly on the surface making this plant great for surface coverage, even in shady ponds! This plant is actually an aquatic fern that reproduces via spores. Easy to grow, very adaptive and sure to add a "lucky charm" to any water garden.

Native to many, warm areas of the world. Introduced to the U.S.

    Clover for the pond

    Posted by Rick Kowalewski on 18th May 2023

    I ordered this thinking it was floating clover (which we've had before). It came with instructions for potting. We have just floated it on the surface ... so far, so good, we'll see. It looks good.
