- Hardy Bog Plant

The Marsh Marigold plant is a herbaceous, perennial member of the buttercup family, native to marshes, ditches and wet-woodland temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere and is one of the first pond plants to bloom in the spring. This 6-12" Marsh Marigold plant does well in full or partial sun but will wilt in the heat of summer, returning in the fall as temperatures cool.
Marsh Marigold flowers are yellow, 1–2" diameter, with multiple petal-like sepals and many yellow stamens; they appear in early spring to late summer and are visited by a great variety of insects for pollen and for the nectar secreted from small depressions, one on each side of each carpel. These hardy bog plants come in bundles of 2.

Mail Order: What To Expect
Plants you receive by mail need time to adjust. Your plants will arrive in bundles. Upon arrival, they may not appear lush but given time & proper care, they will flourish!
Plant directly into pond and water garden planting shelves or you can fill individual planting containers loosely with aquatic planting media, placing the appropriate fertilizer tablets into the bottom half of the planting media and covering them over, then filling planting media 2/3 to the top. Place the plant in the center of the pot with the roots spread out over the planting media, and then continuing to cover the roots with planting media. The crown of the plant, which is the connection between the roots and stems, can usually be about 1" below the surface of the planting media for best results. Avoid using bagged potting mix and other lightweight soils because they will float and continually cloud pond water.

Regular fertilization of your Marsh Marigold will keep it growing well all season long. CrystalClear® Thrive™ Fertilizer Tablets can be pushed into the soil at planting time and from April through August, see label for fertilizer application rates.
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.
All leaves and stems will begin to die off as winter arrives. If planted directly into a bog area, plants should be left alone after trimming any dead foliage to 1 to 2" above the top of the water. Plants that are on plant-shelves, in planting containers, should be trimmed to 1 to 2" and then gently lowered into the ponds deeper water. All plants submerged before winter must be brought back up as soon as the ice has permanently thawed, and before any plant growth occurs. In Zones 6 and warmer, most pond plants can tolerate being left in place without moving them at all.
The first step towards effectively treating any pond weed is proper identification. Marsh Marigold, Bundle of 2 is recommended for use against each of the weeds listed below. Click on your desired weed for more information and alternate control options.
