Choosing plants for your water gardens made easy....
Oz Watergardens have developed an easy to use guide for plant selection, by classifying plants according to their optimum water levels.
The pond is divided into 5 plant zones, as shown on the Oz Watergardens Zone Map. The key to each zone is referenced using numbered colour symbols. All plants listed on this website, or grown and supplied by Oz Watergardens are labeled with these symbols.
Just click on the area of the Zone Map image to help choose the plants that are recommended for that area or depth of your pond.
Why water gardens benefit from selecting plants from each of the 5 zones?
All well designed water gardens should incorporate plants from the 5 pond plant zones. By selecting a range of plants from each of the different zones, your water gardens can establish a more balanced environment and improve the pond health. In essence you create a miniature version of what occurs in nature. A small ecosystem that brings life into your garden.
