Product Overview

Variegated Four Leaf Water Clover (Marsilea mutica)

The 1" to 3" four leaf clovers float on the water surface and root into soil. Leaves are highly and attractively variegated with concentric circles of varying shades of green and brown on each petal. It is a fast grower and a good plant to help cover the water surface. When grown in very shallow water, the leaves will grow up out of the water, giving a different appearance. Multiplies by underground and floating runners.

Although called a clover, this plant is (surprisingly) actually a fern! Don't ask us how this affects its being a good luck charm, but we prefer to think its still magical.

Hardiness Zone: 5-11
Planting Container: We recommend a 2 gallon solid planting container or a medium planting bag.
Light Requirements: full sun to part shade
Height: Floating to 6" - Spread: Running 
Water Depth: Moist Soil or water up to 3' deep (Maximum water depth is for mature bog plants)

For planting instructions see our: Planting Instructions for Bog Plants Page.

    This plant is settling in to my water garden nicely with lots of new leaves after just a couple weeks. Mine are much more dramatically variegated being in full sun. I potted right away even though the pond was still quite cool at night but this plant doesn't mind. FYI, it's candy to goldfish which is why I needed to get another and put it in a pond with only minnows and gambusas.
