These plants are grown in water gardens. Growing the stems and branches tend to develop downwards. This plant in the winter assumes a white colouring; it is small in size and can reach 25 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.
For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Waterhyssop in a partially shady place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. During this time of year we shouldn't worry about minimum temperatures, in fact the The Waterhyssop can bear temperatures a few degrees below zero.Our water plants can't bear cold temperatures therefore we can move them inside the house, placing them in large containers.
Letís water the The Waterhyssop frequently and regularly; every 0-1 weeks we should wet the soil deeply, using 1-2 buckets of water , but avoiding wetting it too much. These plants need a great quantity of dampness; they should be placed on shores, or sea beds, or small ponds. If grown in a large container, usually the water should be substituted every 15-20 days.
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
Aquatic plants need a heavy, scarcely drained, constantly humid soil.
