I just wanted to thank you so much, firstly for dealing with my order so promptly (ordered Thursday, delivered the following Tuesday!!) and for sending me such beautiful, healthy willows. They are now in place and I look forward to my living hedge, screening my driveway from my neighbours. Thank you again for such fantastic service and I will be glad to recommend you to my friends.

  • Looks like a floating head of lettuce with soft, hairy leaves.
  • Happy in full sun or partial shade.
  • Leaves can be up to 10" (25 cms) long and 4" (10 cms) wide.
  • They provide shade and spawning areas for fish.
  • Water lettuce can oxygenate and clear water
  • It can prevent algal blooms.
  • Water lettuce plants readily send out runners and love to be crowded together (just remove some if there are too many).
  • They provide a valuable habitat for insect larvae and snails.
  • Susceptible to frost and do best in sheltered pools.
  • Can be overwintered indoors.
  • Larger fish may eat the roots.
