Orontium is a deep marginal plant with striking yellow pokers and lush velvety leaves. Very unusual and an excellent subject for pond planting. Will grow in water 6 to 45 cm deep. Will grow in part sun to full shade. Ideal for deeper areas of the pond where other marginals may fail. Plant in a large planting basket to accomodate the roots which require a good depth of soil.
