£4.00

Water figwort is a tall waterside plant that can grow up to 1metre. It is a perfect plant for wet areas in a meadow or woodland and is often found on riverbanks in nature. It will survive well at a pond edge, or damp area of the garden and the maroon flowers are great for attracting bees. It also has the advantage of being evergreen, so creating an overwintering habitat for wildlife by the pond.
