Thalia, just coming into bloom, is a sturdy pond plant. It really should be in full sun, but the willow bush planted in back of the pond keeps it in part shade for most of the day. Still, the plant is thriving, so much so that when I took the pond apart earlier this spring (see ‘backyard pond’ post of 5/4/12 )I cut this back to about 1/4 its original size. I leave this, and all my water plants, in the pond throughout the year. I just have no use for water plants that must be lifted and brought indoors for the winter.
