- Green Floating Plant
- Adds Dramatic Interest To Your Pond
- Increases Natural Filtration
Frogbit has green heart-shaped leaves that resemble a miniature water lily and float on top of the waters surface. Their fleshy, heart-shaped leaves are thick and leathery, growing in a 2-6" rosette, and when crowded, the leaves will extend above the waters surface; otherwise they would generally lay flat on the water. Frogbit has small white flowers that bloom in the summer, and like all floating plants, Frogbit is great for shade and added filtration from their many roots.

Mail Order: What To Expect
Plants you receive by mail need time to adjust. Frogbit will arrive in Bunches (several stems or groupings of plants). Upon arrival, they may not appear lush but given time & proper care, they will flourish!
Simply place in water and plant will float freely.
Fertilization is typically not needed for Frogbit as they take excess nutrients from your pond water. If needed, Microbe-Lift® Bloom & Grow™ can be used.
For best results, trim or prune as leaves and flowers begin to turn yellow or brown, remove them completely, discarding them to keep as much excess organic material out of water-body as possible.
In Zones 5 and lower, discard Frogbit after the first hard frost.
Frogbit is considered an invasive species in some states and is restricted from being shipped to those states. Never release these plants in public lakes or waterways in any state.
The first step towards effectively treating any pond weed is proper identification. Frogbit is recommended for use against each of the weeds listed below. Click on your desired weed for more information and alternate control options.
