Red Ludwigia is a submerged oxygenating plant with red-green leaves that at times can protrude from the water. The more light Red Ludwigia has, the darker the red will be on the under side of its leaves. Red Ludwigia is a very fast grower, and you can also let this plant float on the surface if you choose. This is a great plant for adding color under the water in your pond and a place for fish to hide and reproduce. Red Ludwigia is ideal for tucking into crevices along the pond edge, bog area or waterfall. Sold in bundles of 5.
