Our Plants


We are proud of our plants and serious about the confidence you place in us when you purchase from us.

As part of our commitment to you, we continually network with other water gardening professionals. We are members of the International Waterlily & Water Gardening Society (IWGS), and Bronze members of the Water Gardeners International (WGI).

We are particularly proud to be certified members of Truly Named a program of WGI. As certifying members, we pledge that the waterlily cultivars that we offer are true to name (unless noted). We have provided a list of our cultivars complete with images and/or provenance to WGI and our plants have been certified. When you purchase from us, we want you to feel confident that you will get the lily that you purchased.

We understand the part we play in your gardening experience and it is important to us that your experiences match your dreams.

Our pond and marginal plants are sold through many Humboldt County retailers, on the internet and at our new growing location in McKinleyville. Please contact us for the location and times.






To Our Internet Customers...

There are benefits to purchasing from a small grower!

We spare no expense to bring you the healthiest and liveliest plants available. We grow only in genuine soil so that your plants have access to all the micro nutrients and health the soil has to offer. That means less transplant shock when you get them home.

We also do not harvest our plants until the day we ship them. The large growers harvest their plants en mass and put them in a cooler until your order comes in. This means it takes longer for your plant to recover. We harvest and clean each rhizome as your order comes in. Our plants are out of the water only a few days before they arrive for you to plant. They respond better and begin new healthy and more abundant growth in less time.

You will appreciate the personal attention that you get when you purchase from Rosepond Aquatics. We think it is an important part of the quality and service that goes into making your gardening experience pleasant.

For information on shipping and accepted methods of payment, please see our policies page.



To Our Local Customers

We have now opened our growing grounds on Dows Prairie for sales and tours. Children especially like the farm as there are frogs, tadpoles, fish and, of course, flowers. Contact us to make your appointment.
