15 Beautiful Water Plants For Indoors and Backyard Ponds

#11 Umbrella Palm


The umbrella palm creates a soft backdrop for shorter aquatic plants. It can grow and spread notoriously fast, so it’s often best to keep it in a container.

#12 Water Forget-Me-Not


The water forget-me-not blooms beautiful blue or pink flowers in dense mats of foliage. These plants are best planted in moving water like in waterfalls, where you can easily stick the stem cuttings in between rocks. You can also plant them around the edges of the pond, as these water plants prefer shallow waters.

#13 Cattail


Another tall plant you can add to your outdoor pond is the cattail. This water plant is great for adding an architectural presence in your outdoor ponds, with their majestic height sprouting in the sides.

#14 Mosaic Flower


The mosaic flower is a floating plant named after its diamond-shaped leaves that form a mosaic. It grows reddish-green leaves in 3-6″ rosettes which can be an attractive texture on the surface of your pond. These water plants are great for providing shade in ponds with fishes. The yellow flowers bloom in the middle of summer.

#15 Water Lily


The water lily has striking similarities with the water lotus. Its most distinct difference is the leaves; the water lily’s leaves stay floating like lily pads, while the lotus leaves are well above and not touching the surface.
