Hardy Plant Bloody Dock

Compound leaves fold with touch, making this plant really fun for kids and adults alike. Main trailing stem can grow 6’, but can be trained to grow up rocks or in a stream if you don’t have room for it in the pond. This is a tropical plant that does best in warm water, and make sure to place it in a location where people can touch it to enjoy its most famous feature. Tuck the stem into rocks along the pond’s edge or plant in a shallow pot and train it in the direction you desire.
