Tags: garden | plant


Aquatic plants are unique and exist in many species. Aquatic plants can only grow in water or permanently saturated soil. Look carefully, the leaf shapes on the same plant grow differently above and below the water surface. There are numerous Taiwan native aquatic plants; they are found in paddies, riversides or pools. They have become endangered species due to urbaniz development, chemical effluents, heavy industrial pollution and river dredging. The Aquatic Plants Garden represents a collection of a wide variety of wild aquatic plants for preservation and conservation in order to place emphasis on the need to preserve our environment.
