Spring is in the air and so is the pond season. Besides our native plants, a good many proven and potential aquarium plants can be found in the pond section in fish stores, nurseries and even places like Lowes and Home Depot. I tried Saururus chinensis a few years ago and found it to be a great plant. It takes a long time to fully adapt, but it does, and in my opinion, is nicer than S. cernuus.

This year, I'll probably try Gratiola officinalis (the real one) again along with Justicia americana (related to Hygrophila) and whatever else I can find.

Has anyone else made any pond section discoveries?

I'm speaking more of new species that we might find for aquariums as opposed to the opposite, although growing stuff outside can indeed be rewarding.

Isn't Lobelia fulgens a synonym for cardinalis? Is it a red cultvar of the latter or something like that?
