The edges of a natural pond or water feature are usually moist, boggy and marshy. This is a great place for plants commonly called Marginals. In other words, plants that don't mind having wet feet, but would prefer not to be fully submerged. Examples include:
- Some Iris Varieties
- Some Primulas
- Rush (Juncus)
- Taro / Elephant Ears
Further away from the water's edge you could plant nearly any plant. Japanese Maples look particularly good!
