What are Pond Plants and How do they Benefit my Koi Pond in Philadelphia?

Pond PlantsPond plants, or aquatic plants, aren’t just used in water gardens to provide beauty and naturalization. Aquatic plants also serve the very important function of helping to balance the Koi Pond ecosystem. Their valuable biological filtration helps remove nitrogen, ammonia, nitrates, and other minerals that algae would otherwise feed on. In addition, the pond plants provide food, shade, and protection for the fish and wildlife that live in and around you water feature or koi pond. Typically, they are divided into four groups – water lilies, marginals, floating plants, and submerged plants.
