The finest water gardens are filled with plants from J & J. Azolla is also known as Water Fern or Fairy Moss. It is an important plant because it is a nitrogen fixer and has implications for sustainable agriculture. It is a beautiful addition to your pond or bog, as it changes color from light green to deep rust red as it matures. It is is a robust, disease-resistant plant that is also a great nutritious snack for your fish!. Azolla is hardy to Zone 7. (What is your Hardiness Zone?) It ships as a pint by volume (several hundred plants.) Please read the planting instructions to insure transplant success. As with all aquatic plants, do not release into the wild.
Environmental Implications:All Azolla species live in symbiosis with a blue green alga Anabaena azollae which is able to fixate sufficient nitrogen for both itself and its host plant. In exchange Azolla provides the Anabaena with a protected environment and a fixed source of carbon (Wagner, 1997) This makes Azolla important in enhancing world nutrition. It is currently used in some rice paddies.
