Bog Bean (Menyanthes trifoliata) - 9cm
- Ex Tax: £3.75
- Product Code: Plant Marginal Bog Bean - 9cm
A rambling plant with trifoliate, olive-green foliage that creeps over the surface of the water. The attractive white flowers are tipped with pink. An infusion of the roots used to be used as a tonic for fevers, gout and other complaints.
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.
