Salvinia is a true fern, much like Azolla and is sometimes referred to as "cat's tongue". The spongy, velvety leaves are pale green and approximately 1/4 inch in diameter. This tiny floating pond plant is great for container water gardens. It will also adapt well in a larger water garden although they may be consumed by your koi, as it is on their list as a favorite food.
