SAVE £0.30. The Hornwort Ceratophyllum Demersum Oxygenating Pond Plant is a Native Oxygenating Plant and is a many branched Oxygenator with thick, dense, dark green foliage which grow in dense whorls around the stem.  Hornwort  Ceratophyllum Demersum grows in a fluffy floating mat.  It has no true roots so does not need to be planted into a container.  Hornwort has very small white to cream blooms and flowers in mid-summer.  It offers a valuable habitat for fish and wildlife, particularly in winter when not much other foliage is available in the water.   The Hornwort grows 1 - 3m long in sun to part shade and in water up to 1m deep and spreads 1 - 1.5m or more. Allow Hornwort Ceratophyllum Demersum to sink to the bottom of the pond in winter as it will often continue to grow at a slower rate even under ice.  The Pond Plant is easy to grow and suitable for large ponds and lakes. Other names: hornwort, cedar moss, coon tail, fish blankets, horn weed, morass weed, rigid hornwort.
