Forgive me for not knowing but is this plant hardy as it looks very beautiful and exotic.

It’s hardy in the pond Cal so long as the pond doesn’t freeze over for too long. This last mild winter it kept some leaves on. Usually they die down until a growth spurt in spring.

It’s looking very lush, Sheila. I took mine out despite really loving it, I was told it’s toxic to cats.

Amazing, I’m not too sure if it would fit in my water feature though as I have an iris, a water lily that’s never flowered and a solar powered water fountain bobbing about in there, maybe an excuse to make a new one so I can buy one of these :)

Does very well in water, better than a border, especially if like mine, is too dry.
