Ideas on what to plant in these areas near my pond?
I've just had some very messy and overgrown reeds dug out near my pond, they had increased so much they were taking over the areas and if we tried to cut them back it seemed to compromise the rest of the plant.
I have grown hosta by the pond very successfully but they die down in winter, I was hoping to plant something that will show all year round but it is very wet being right next to the stream/pond. There is some sunlight/partial shade.
The first two photo's show the reeds before removal.
Photo's 1 + 3 are the same area but from different angles.
Photo's 2 + 4 are the same area.
The text was directed at my sister so ignore the bit about the cat ... not sure why the photo's are so big either, sorry.
Is it 'marginal' plants I need to be looking up? What is that green stuff in the water?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
