Product information "Butomus umbellatus"

Flowering rush is a very beautiful perennial for garden ponds, where it grows in shallow waters. Its leaves are triangular and grow like cane-like. From June to August, the umbel-shaped, ray-like, pink flowers appear at an height of about 100 to 120 cm. Flowering rush develops best in nutrient-rich water. It is a real eye-catcher in every garden pond and is also suitable for clear water pools of swimming ponds as it takes up a lot of nutrients.
