I have for sale a variety of pond and aquarium plants. Lots of water lilies in different colors, red (Attraction, Nero, and a no-name red), pink (James Brydon solid pink and a no-name pink), white (no name), yellow (Sulphurea, Chromatella, Nymphea mexicana semi-tropical, a no-name hardy) and some that change color (Sioux)! Lilies, priced at $15!
I have a semi-tropical yellow water lily Nymphea mexicana that is actually a species and not a cultivar that survives very well here, even through those two hard freezes we had in the last few years. Very free-flowering. On the first day the flower opens, it contains a pool of sweet nectar in the center which usually evaporates by the second day. This species lily is a parent of most of the hardy yellow lily varieties that have been well known over the last 100 years!
Water iris in purple and yellow. Parrot's feather, vallisneria, native NM rushes, cattails (regular tall and a dwarf variety that is not invasive, 2' high), pickerel rush (purple flower), variegated grass (looks like bamboo), primrose creeper, water celery (green and variegated types), aquatic mint, sagittaria, horsetail, green sweet flag and more.
Water lettuce and water hyacinth are in stock right now! These two floating on surface will cut down on algae in your pond. Special price at $3.
Most potted in 1 gallon pots, $10-15, smaller 3-4" pots are $5-7. Bareroot or bunched plants, $5. Volume deals, too. Call Nick for best prices. If you email me, put 'pond plants' in the subject line to help keep the spam filters from eating your email! If I don't have it now, I can probably get it for you. If you want something specific, especially the colorful tropical lilies, let me know and I will add to my next order.
I also have mosquito fish for those who want a pond but not koi or goldfish, or if you just want to add some variety to your pond. If we can catch some, that is!
It is important to fertilize your lilies if you want flowers. I have large commercial fertilizer spikes that will last all season long, unlike those tiny tablets most places sell.
