Early-Flowering ‘Water Hawthorn’

This aquatic flower will be one of the first to bloom in the cool spring. In the summer’s warm, water the plant will show signs of dormancy. In fall, a wonderful amount of aromatic blooms will appear into the winter months as ice begins to form on the pond.

This plant will give off a strong fragrance resembling a wild hawthorn, hence the name. If you want an aquatic with fragrant flowers water hawthorn is a must!
