I LOVE ❤️ Aquatic Plants | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Aquatic Plants are so underutilized in my opinion. People with Water Gardens are in the know much more than your average gardener of course… But I want everyone to know how awesome they really are! Use them in Water Gardens, in Bogs, in Rain Gardens, in Containers, around the edges of field Ponds, even in your Flower Beds!

Here are a few images of beautiful Aquatic Plants. We carry most of not all of these at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio. 👇🏻

Bloody Dock – From Water Gardens to Containers to the flower bed accent – These are cool!

 Or 👇🏻

Society Garlic

Or 👇🏻

Aquatic Four Leafed Clover – Every day is a lucky 🍀 day!

or👇🏻

Scarlett Mallow – A hardy hibiscus 🌺 Huge Blooms comeS back every year!

Or 👇🏻

Everyone loves Iris

And 👇🏻

Corkscrew Rush for Containers ❤️

Or 👇🏻

Lotus – These always steal the show! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

These are just a few of my favorites! Try a few Aquatic Plants for yourself. You won’t be disappointed! 

Have a great day!
