Marginal plants are planted on the shallow sides of your pond in depths of water from 2" to 10". These come in varieties hardy to Indiana's zone and tropical varieties as well.
A classic pond plant, water lilies are great at shading your pond and providing brilliant pops of color. You can find hardy lilies at Cool Ponds that will come back form year to year as well as vibrant tropical lilies which are treated as annuals.
Floating plants grow quickly, compete with algae effectively, and provide shade.
