Needle Leaf Ludwigia (Ludwigia acruata) pot with floating ring

Needle Leaf Ludwigia is a native to the Southern Eastern areas of the United States. It has needle like leaves, produces a yellow flower, and provides an excellent cover for fish and tadpoles.  It can also act as an oxygenator when submersed to a depth of 20cm. High levels of nutrient and sunlight will make the foliage turn a rich red colour. The plant is well suited to a floating pond ring as it will quickly spread out over the top of it. Cut the plant back in summer to promote new growth.
