Purple Loosestrife

Lythrum salicaria


A stunning plant for a medium to large pond or lake. The tall, pink blooms can be seen from some distance, it is free flowering over a long period in summer.

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.
