    Great for Honey Bees!

    Posted by Heidi on Jun 19th 2017

    I use this plant in my pond so that the honey bees can gather water easily. My order arrived promptly and my plants are doing very well. I couldn't be more pleased with how healthy they looked right away.

    Lilyblooms has *the best* pond plants around. Very high quality that can't be beat. When I could no longer get another floating pond plant I had been using, Lilyblooms sent me a sample box of various floating pond plants they carried and salvinia was one of them. I wish I would have tried it sooner. It looks fantastic in my pond along with rosette water lettuce and so far is very hardy. I love it!
