(Dwarf Cattail)

Dwarf cattail is a hardy, clumping, aquatic perennial native to Eurasia. The smallest of cattails, it is more in scale with gardens and garden ponds than its giant relative, common cattail. It is valued for its upright narrow leaves, slender profile and flower spikes. The tiny flowers cluster densely in a narrow cylindrical spike atop a stem that appears in mid- and late summer. The male flowers, which are yellow hued, occupy the top of the spike and soon fall away leaving a naked portion of stem....

(Bladderwort)

Comprising more than 200 aquatic, terrestrial, or epiphytic annuals and perennials from all parts of the world, the bladderworts are named for the curious, inflated, insect-trapping structures that dot their stems and leaves. Floating bladderworts such as Utricularia vulgaris and U. gibba are popular aquarium and water garden plants.

Bladderworts bear rounded or feathery leaves on stem-like stolons that creep along or below the surface of the water or soil. The stolons...

Named for the curious, inflated, insect-trapping structures that dot its thread-like leaves, greater bladderwort makes an intriguing subject for aquariums and water features. This hardy aquatic perennial is native to stagnant waters over much of Europe and temperate Asia.

This free-floating plant bears feathery, finely divided leaves on stem-like stolons that creep below the water surface. New plants form at the stolon tips, eventually forming a mat-like network. The leaves are lined with small...

(Creeping Blueberry, Well's Delight Creeping Blueberry)

An excellent groundcover for sandy acidic soils, this blueberry relative is a low mat-forming evergreen shrub from the southeastern United States. It steadily expands to provide a reliably dense and attractive carpet of small shiny dark-green leaves. Some forms such as 'Wells Delight' have bronze new foliage. The small, red, urn shaped flowers appear in late spring. These give rise to a scattering small, sweet, black-blue fruits. Several cultivars have been selected for vigor and for foliage size...

A low mat-forming evergreen from upper latitudes worldwide, lingonberry provides a year-round display of attractive foliage, flowers, and fruits. Oval, glossy, dark green leaves densely line prostrate branches that root where they contact soil. Young leaves often are red- or orange-tinted. In late spring and early summer clusters of pendent bell-shaped white or pink flowers crowd the branch tips. Bright red, round fruits that taste like cranberries follow, becoming more flavorful with age. They are...
