Indian Tobacco - Verbesina virginica
The first and most wonderful plant that I met that day was the Texas Star Hibiscus. Settlers and Native Americans alike used the leaves for smoking. The simple blooming flowers that supported this wonderful plant slowly caught my attention.

During this time, the stem remains dormant. Strollers delight in the mild weather and in the new flowers and emerging green foliage of deciduous shrubs and trees. If falling fruit will be a problem, choose a male plant.

4 in. Potted Bog/Marginal Arrow Arum Pond Plant
Prices start at : 8.96 USD / each

The dark green glossy arrowhead shaped leaves make for a beautiful background edge plant or specimen plant in a pond. Arrow Arum or Peltandra virginica, is an attractive native aquatic plant that is great for ponds.
  •  Having a bog plant already planted in aquatic soil provides a big advantage in terms of an established root system which makes the transition into your pond very easy and reduces the risk of failure
  •  Relatively insignificant yellow-green flowers are reliable and will produce many dark purple seeds which are enjoyed by many forms of wildlife, especially ducks
  •  Will thrive in sunny to shady light conditions which makes it versatile when planting
  •  Very hardy perennial from zones 5 - 10, very desirable due to its "clumping" nature making it easy to control and maintain, slow to mature and can reach heights up to 2 ft. - 3 ft.
