The Bloomsz Waterplant Floater Kit provides a unique approach to adding marginal plants to water gardens and water features. The included basket is used to plant the 3 included varieties and help to maintain the desired position along the edge of the water garden or pond. Additional floaters (baskets) can be easily attached or placed anywhere desired. Each of the three included plants will add texture and vertical accent to the pond. Acorus has narrow, bright green leaves with a creamy white stripe running down the center. It grows about 18 in. tall. Anemopsis is a low-growing groundcover that lays flat and forms mats of large, waxy, gray/green leaves that resemble rosettes. Yellow cone-shaped spikes emerge amid the leaves and develop white petal-like bracts that form beautiful flowers from spring through summer. When the weather is warm, the plant emits a distinct, musty, spicy fragrance. Carex forms clumps of 3-sided narrow, arching, almost grass-like foliage. Bright and almost apple-green in color, this ornamental produces round, spiky seed heads in summer.
