Planting pond/bog plants

13 years ago

Hi, I'm new here, but this is a really great site, so I will be back a lot.

I am just starting a garden pond, and I've had someone send me some, thalia dealbata, gamecock iris, and red leaved canna. They are rhizomes, or what ever you call them with the leaves cut off, some of them are starting to come back.

My question is do I just put them in pots with regular garden soil? And how deep should they be in the water? I'm assuming just barely below the surface?

Any other tips are welcome! Thanks a bunch! :)
