Houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon'
This is one of my very favorite aquatic plants in the whole world! This plant has so much going for it. It has great color with leaves that are green, pink, red, yellow, and apricot. The stems are a bright reddy-pink. It has the cutest white flowers with yellow stamens, and if you bruise the leaves it smells like lemon or citronella. It will take full sun to part shade although you will get the best red coloring with full sun. It likes a moist, wet, boggy area or as much as 4″ of water over the crown of the pot. it spreads rapidly so definately keep it in a pot in your pond or in a bog area where it can’t get into the garden and take over. it is herbaceous and will die to the ground in the winter but will return bigger and better next year!

Also known as ‘Queen of the Buttercups’, Trollius chinensis ‘Golden Queen’ is a striking and colorful element for the garden. ‘Golden Queen’ produces 2-3 inch wide, golden-orange, bowl-shaped flowers from late spring into midsummer. They stand in stark contrast against the dark green foliage. Trollius is a wonderful addition to any sunny or partially shaded, moist area such as the edges of ponds or streams. We’ve got them here at Falling Water Gardens for just $12.
