This native British pond plant has coarse, tufty leaves forming a forest of dark green foliage underwater. During daylight hours the submerged growth produces bubbles of oxygen, increasing the oxygen in the pondwater, helping to balance pond ecology and benefitting pond life. Helps to reduce unsightly algae and provides a better environment for fish. No height above the water (underwater plant).
