Water Plants

, ,


Water plants are traditionally divided into three categories : floating plants, shallow-water bog or marsh plants and submerged plants. Easy available from garden centers and through mail-order catalogues.

1) Floating Plants

Floating Water Plants - Water Hyacinth (Lilac Devil)

There are two categories of floating plants : free-floaters, which have roots hanging freely in the water, and attached floaters, whose leaves float on the surface but whose roots are attached to the bottom. Floating plants are easy to care for and efficient natural water filters, removing large quantities of nitrogen, phosphate and other substances from the water. They compete with algae for nutrients, thereby minimizing the chance of algal overgrowths.

2) Shallow-water bog or marsh plants

Water Lilies (White)  Water lilies (Blue)  Umbrella Plants (Cyperus Alternifolius)  Lotus Pink

Plants that grow in shallow water with most of the plant above the surface, are included in this category. Many produce vegetation that is quite lush and varied. Bog plants grown in pots and scattered along marginal areas are beautiful additions to pond. Popular plants include the arrowhead plant (Sagittaria latifolia), unbrella plant (Cyperus alternifolius), pickerel weed (Pontederia cordata), water iris (Iris spp), sweet flag (Acourus calamus), and horsetail (Equisetum hyemale).

3) Submerged Plants
Submerged plants are rooted on the bottom, with their leaves totally below the surface. These plants are often sold for use in freshwater aquariums. Common examples include Cabomba, Elodea, and Ludwigia. Although they are excellent for removing nutrients and carbon dioxide from ponds, they are quicky uprooted and eaten by koi.

4) Sub Plants

Valentine’s Day

St. Valentine’s Story

Let me introduce myself. My name is Valentine. I lived in Rome during the third century. That was long, long ago! At that time, Rome was ruled by an emperor named Claudius. I didn’t like Emperor Claudius, and I wasn’t the only one! A lot of people shared my feelings.
Claudius wanted to have a big army. He expected men to volunteer to join. Many men just did not want to fight in wars. They did not want to leave their wives and families. As you might have guessed, not many men signed up. This made Claudius furious. So what happened? He had a crazy idea. He thought that if men were not married, they would not mind joining the army. So Claudius decided not to allow any more marriages. Young people thought his new law was cruel. I thought it was preposterous! I certainly wasn’t going to support that law!

Did I mention that I was a priest? One of my favourite activities was to marry couples. Even after Emperor Claudius passed his law, I kept on performing marriage ceremonies — secretly, of course. It was really quite exciting. Imagine a small candlelit room with only the bride and groom and myself. We would whisper the words of the ceremony, listening all the while for the steps of soldiers.

One night, we did hear footsteps. It was scary! Thank goodness the couple I was marrying escaped in time. I was caught. (Not quite as light on my feet as I used to be, I guess.) I was thrown in jail and told that my punishment was death.

I tried to stay cheerful. And do you know what? Wonderful things happened. Many young people came to the jail to visit me. They threw flowers and notes up to my window. They wanted me to know that they, too, believed in love.

One of these young people was the daughter of the prison guard. Her father allowed her to visit me in the cell. Sometimes we would sit and talk for hours. She helped me to keep my spirits up. She agreed that I did the right thing by ignoring the Emperor and going ahead with the secret marriages. On the day I was to die, I left my friend a little note thanking her for her friendship and loyalty. I signed it, “Love from your Valentine.”

I believe that note started the custom of exchanging love messages on Valentine’s Day. It was written on the day I died, February 14, 269 A.D. Now, every year on this day, people remember. But most importantly, they think about love and friendship. And when they think of Emperor Claudius, they remember how he tried to stand in the way of love, and they laugh — because they know that love can’t be beaten!
