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

Milfoil is a fast-growing pond plant and this makes it ideal for natural algae control. It does this by competing with the algae for nutrient. Less nutrient means less algae and clear water.  Further the little fine leaves of Milfoil help to captcha 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 and neat.
