Water Lettuce

Pistia stratiotes

This listing is for x3 Water Lettuce plants.

The lettuce shaped leaves are soft & hairy. This plant spreads by sending out runners to form young plants. The fine roots give good cover for small fish. Pistia are not hardy and do best placed in sheltered pools.

Water lettuce is great for adding shade to a pond without shelves.

This is a tropical plant and therefore is not frost hardy. As the leaves turn brown early autumn, remove from pond and add to compost. Replace with new plants the following spring.
