Plants - What are the plants that surround the pond.

The aquatic plant on the right side of the pond and in front of the chair is Pickerel Rush. The terrestial plants outside of the pond were not planted by us. We installed the pond and the aquatic plants.

Hi gtotogo, the plant in back is a pine tree. Maybe a snow pine. The green one in front of it on the rocks is an Acer Palmatum, Japanese Maple. They grow to be about 10' high and also come in redish burgundy colors. They do pretty will in shade to part shade. To the left of it looks like a lily or grass. Reeds do well near ponds too and water Irises. I like Cyperus, umbrella plant but they need containment because they spread.

Here's a web page that has a list of aquatic plants that tolerate shade. You'll have several options from which to choose!

What are the names of plants used in the water feature? - We are starting over on an old koi pond at our just-purchased home. Need help with plants to put in. Thanks so much!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Out in the Yard: 10 Private Retreats
A weathered Adirondack chair easily knits its way into a natural setting like this one. The stacked rocks around the pond add visual interest while keeping the feeling calm and serene. Tip: When creating your own outdoor retreat, it's important to think about color and how it relates to the overall feel of the area. The calm surrounding greens and browns could be potentially overwhelmed by the chair if it were painted a bright color.
Becky Harris added this to Adirondack Chairs
Adirondack chairs are a great option for dotting around a property in special spots. Here one can enjoy the comfy slant while fishing, or even just sitting back and enjoying the splash of the waterfall and the lovely view.
1. DigYou’re going to need a hole. A big one. It's free if you do it yourself. If you need the dirt hauled away, you’ll have to pay. Prices typically range from a couple hundred dollars to several hundred, depending on the amount and other factors.Leidner prefers deeper holes, but it’s up to you what aesthetic you’re going for. Both shallow and deep ponds have their benefits and disadvantages.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Koi Find Friendly Shores in Any Garden Style
Just add a few chairs and carefully placed rocks, and you may not come in until dark. The boulders serve a utilitarian purpose as well by providing shelter from predators.
