Hygrophila difformis


Water Wisteria is an impressive example of the adaptability of leaves above and below the waterline. Emersed leaves have a simple shape with slightly serrated edges; submersed leaves tend to look more like feathers. This gives them a lovely filigree look. H. difformis is best showcased in a mix with simple leaf shapes. These plants are easy to cultivate, which of course makes them even more attractive. Propagation is very easy: remove offshoots from the main stem and replant.
