I'll have to stop in the pet shop and talk to them about water plants. Would be nice to get something that I don't need to replace ever year. But I want to get some nice colors.

At 2 feet, you should be able to keep water lilies. They live in my pond at that depth. Quite a few things now come in "miniature" and can live in a basket of pond muck, sunk to the bottom. You need to go to a Garden center, not a pet place.

Looks great Dan. You should be able to get a lilly, they are in a lot of the smaller lakes and bigger ponds here year after year

Find a place that specializes in Aquatic gardens. There are a lot of different colors to choose from within the hardy lilly offerings.

I deal with Webb’* Water Garden. I have used them for on line orders but prefer to go to the center as it is only 45 minutes away

I stopped at petsmart and looked. They have the bags of Lillis in red, purple, and yellow. Didn't pick any up, just looking.

You have to be careful with some of those water plants depending on how you put them in. We used to have floating pots that worked pretty good. Some of them if planted in the water will take over with there roots and become a pain to remove.

I'll keep that in mind. But the pond has a liner, is that still a issue?

Do you have the liner covered with rocks or sand or anything? I've never seen them damage or grow through a liner, but we used to bury them underneath pea gravel, and a year later you have quite the mess on your hands trying to remove them.

edit: I guess I should clarify on that, we didn't bury the plants, just the roots to hold them in place. Those roots can really take off and grow into everything.
