They are a sign of elegance and tranquility. At least ponds in a yard are and so are the plants people put in them.

And we have them here at Rillito Nursery.

The newest shipment came in just in time for summer. And we have an array of colors to make any pond look spectacular. We think your fish – those who have them in the pond – will love them, too.

We have lilies in red, yellow, orange and almost black.

And we have many types of bog plants lots of which bloom like the Iris, Canna, Cardinal flower, water Zinnia, Ruellia, Milkweed, Stargrass, as well as mini cattail and Papyrus.

Bog plants work well planted in flowing creeks and waterfalls.

If you have questions of what makes a good pond plant just ask us. We’re ready and willing to help the expert and the novice. We have plenty of flowers and plants the like at the nursery. We also have gloves, trinkets and all things fun for the garden.

Don’t forget Mother’s Day is just around the corner. She’d love something from the Rillito. And if you don’t know what to get her, a gift certificate is always a good thing. She’ll be able to pick out her own gift.

Come on in – we’re ready to help.
