You've got Water Hawthorn in there, very simple but stunning plant IMHO.

We have lost all of ours.

Paul

p.s. NOT a hint, I don't have enough time to look after our Koi pond at the mo!

the water hawthorn was bought late last year and placed in our old pond but has since been moved to the new large pool, although i dint have any koi apart from ghost koi in ours, we have moved all the frogs back in to our new pond from the old pond too, but now its taking shape its starting to look really stunning.

used the brickie on the internal blocks but because the cavity was so small only just enough for cables to pass through for lighting in brick work, i couldnt use the brickie on the faced brick work :( as i tried it,
