These plants are called Corkscrews and I experimented with them, placing them in a container of water on my porch. They are meant to be in a pond or planted in very wet ground. I don’t have a pond and it gets so hot and humid here in the summer, all my plants probably need to be in a container of water! We have to have drip systems in our gardens (pop ups and underground) that water on a schedule or we would have nothing growing! Even grass!

I have a beautiful, large, contrary fountain in my Cottage Garden. So last year I got tired of babying it. I went to the garden center and bought more of the beautiful water plants. Then I turned off the bubbly section. Nothing could be simpler, just plop the water plants in the fountain water, container and all. Voila done! I had so many compliments on my new Water Garden, I will be doing the same this year!

Sea Green is the Crayola name that was given to the 1958 color, Light Green. In the “So Big” set it is known as Sea Serpent Green and it is Lady Liberty in the “State Color Collection” and represents New York.
