Caltha palustris


To make artificial ponds truly decorative and integrated with the surrounding green space, inserting different vegetative species inside or near them will be very effective. In this way it will be possible to recreate the illusion of a natural space, albeit designed, and create the desired atmosphere through the attention to every detail. A plant of particular impact is the caltha palustris, with its thick foliage and small yellow flowers. Caltha does not fear the cold because it is native to the boreal areas with a harsh climate. The caltha palustrisit grows on the banks of ponds and lakes and is now also found as spontaneous vegetation in some areas of Italy. The plant grows with sturdy stems and reaches a height of about 50 centimeters, with heart-shaped leaves and small bright colored flowers that develop from March to June.


The caltha palustrisit is a resistant plant, which is also suitable for growing spontaneously in some areas of Italy. It does not fear the cold and harsh winters, but being a marsh plant it needs to be able to have access to large quantities of water and must be positioned sufficiently close to the body of water, in such a way as to be able to reach it with its roots. Flowering will be more abundant if the caltha palustris will be exposed in a bright environment and with hours of direct exposure to sunlight. Watering must be regulated on the basis of the climate and the environmental characteristics of the place where the plant is grown: in general, the water needed will be greater in the case of hot weather and in the summer months, while watering may, in some cases,

Caltha palustris: Land and planting

Caltha palustris is a marsh plant: as such, its positioning in the ground must be evaluated on the basis of its proximity to water. The soil must be heavy and constantly humid, especially in the first periods of planting, while in the period of greatest development and flowering of the plant, fertilization will also be provided, in the period between March and June, to favor development. The reproduction of the caltha palustris can easily take place by dividing the rhizomatous roots, in the period of early spring: in this case the plants thus obtained must be placed in a pot, in a sheltered place, until the roots have taken root and the new seedling will not have started to grow. After a few weeks, therefore,
