The pond is preformed plastic, about 3 feet across and 18 inches deep. I have 3 of them set up, and would get a 4th one if I could find one. I got them at Lowe's. It has 3 built-in shelves for the marginal plants, which are in 1 gallon pots.
Plant Identification, around the pond:
12:00 Dauben blue tropical waterlily
2:00 Aquatic mint
8:00 Pink Bells, or ruellia
10:00 Water Hyacinth, floating
11:00 Variegated water celery
I move around a lot and usually live in rented houses. For some strange reason, most landlords do not want their entire yard dug up for a pond. (I think that it's a wonderful idea.) So, I have a lot of miniponds that are portable.
Would you like a small yellow one? I just redid my pond and removed most of my shelve space and have this very little yellow water lily that if I remember right it had "Mexican" in it's name. What is the tall spikey plant with the light blue flower?
Very pretty "dish pond"! You might consider contacting Texas Water Lilies and emailing them pictures of the lilies you want to replace, they are excellent in every way, price, quality, customer service. Tell them you're a member of DG and you might get a discount. I think the tall plant with the blue-ish flower is ruellia.
