Flowering Rush

Butomus umbellatus

Pretty pink flowers in umbels rise above the triangular leaves, which turn from red to dark green as they mature. The roots used  to be crushed and used as food in norther Asia.

This plant will die back to its basket for winter, and begin growing again in the spring. Trim off brown stems/leaves in the autumn to tidy it up.

The recommended depth in water is calculated as the distance between the top of the basket and the water surface. Therefore "0" would be the basket rim at the water surface.
