Upright Milfoil is an attractive water plant and a good pond or garden addition. Milfoil can be submerged to a depth of 20cm, acting as an oxygenator and providing cover for fish and tadpoles. It will spread out over the ponds surface and is used by frogs to spawn on.

Milfoil is a fast-growing pond plant and is ideal for natural algae control. It does this by competing with the algae for nutrients. Less nutrient means less algae and clear water.  Further the little fine leaves of Milfoil help to capture small particles that float in the water further enhancing the clarity of the water in the pond.

Milfoil can be easily propagated and regular pruning will assist in keeping it tidy.
