Amphibious bistort, sometimes known as water knotweed or water smart weed, is a native pond plant. It is equally suited to grow in both deep and shallow water aswell as in pond margins or even on dry land. If being kept in deeper water the leaves will float on the surface like lily pads, or if being kept in the margins the stem will grow upright. The flower is pink and highly attractive to bees and other pollinators. It flowers from June to September and makes an excellent addition to a wildlife pond.
