Frogbit floating pond plant has green heart shaped leaves that float on the waters surface. It resembles a miniature water lily when it spreads. At the nurseries, the frogbit roots in to the soil, which is what we ship. It can be planted if you want, but it won't send out the runners that float. At first the plants might tip over when first put into the pond. It takes about two weeks for it to send out the runners, but then it spreads like crazy and you have a really nice floating plant. Frogbit will form buds that winter over at the bottom of the water garden until spring. If Frogbit roots into soil in the bog areas of the pond, it will grow upright as a marginal plant.
