Water fringe (Talinum paniculatum) is a succulent plant that grows in clumps and produces small, star-shaped flowers. It can be grown in a container or planted directly into the ground. Water fringe plants are hardy in Australia and Victoria in most areas but grow best in areas where daytime temperatures don’t exceed 32 degrees Celsius.
Water Fringe Plant History
Water fringe plants were first discovered in South Africa and have been cultivated for more than 200 years. They differ from other species of Talinum because they have leaves that are unusually shaped like lobes instead of being round like most other Talinum species. These amazing plants are now available at Aumann’s.
Water Fringe Plant Uses
Water fringe plants are commonly used as ground cover or planted around the edges of pools or ponds to prevent erosion and keep debris from accumulating around the water’s edge. They also make effective edging plants for flower beds and borders.
Water Fringe Plant Care
Plant your water fringe plants in a shallow container filled with aquarium gravel or other small rocks that are about 1/2 inch across or smaller.
Make sure there is enough space between each rock so your roots can grow freely throughout the gravel bed.
Water Fringe Plant Care Tips:
Place your container near an uncovered window, so it gets indirect sunlight for several hours each day. If you live in an area where sunlight is limited during winter months, you may need to supplement with artificial light for several hours per day.
The fringed water lily is a beautiful aquatic plant that has bright yellow flowers and thick green leaves. The plant grows in shallow ponds, streams and marshes, where it can reach a height of up to 1 m.
The fringed water lily is native to Australia, but has also been introduced to New Zealand. It prefers moist habitats but can also grow in full sun if there is plenty of water available.
Fringed water lilies are easy to grow from seed, but the seeds must be placed on top of the water surface for them to germinate. They can also be propagated by dividing off clumps of plants that have grown together
Fringed Water Lily Types
There are two types of fringed water lily: Nymphaea stellata and Nymphaea odorata. Both types have white flowers with yellow centres and large leaves that float on top of the water’s surface.
The main difference between these two species is their shape; Nymphaea stellata has round leaves, while Nymphaea odorata has pointed leaves.
Propagating Fringed Water Lilies
Fringed water lilies are easy to propagate from cuttings or seeds. To start new fringes from cuttings, simply place a cutting into some clean potting soil until it has roots forming at its base; then transfer it into a larger container filled with nutrient-rich soil so it can continue growing into a mature plant!

Water Fringe Plant Care
Water Fring (Talinum paniculatum) is an easy-to-grow plant that requires little care once established. Water fringe plants are drought tolerant and only need to be watered occasionally during the growing season when temperatures are below 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21 C).
Allow the top half inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Water fringe plants do not need supplemental fertilizer as they get enough nutrients from organic matter in puddles or low-lying areas where they grow naturally.
Allow your plant to grow in its natural habitat.
The best way to care for a Water fringe (Talinum paniculatum) is to allow it to grow in its natural habitat without interference from humans.
If you must move your plant indoors under lights, use artificial light sources such as fluorescent tubes instead of incandescent bulbs because incandescent bulbs will scorch your plant’s leaves if left on too long.
The water fringe is a great plant for your water garden.
