Plants that work well semisubmerged?

501 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  GraphicGr8s
Is there a list of plants that are specifically for semi-submerged aquascapes?
I'm wanting to design an aquascape to resemble a section of the everglades and I'll need a number of plants to have their roots submerged but the rest of them growing above the waterline.
Thanks for your help!

Anubias are the first to come to mind. Plenty of stems (Ludwigias, Hygrophilas, etc) will readily grow out of the water if you let them.
Most plants can grow emersed. Amazon swords in nature spend a good deal of time with just the roots in water during the dry season. Crypts do well. Most of the stems also. Limnophila aromatica is another. My recommendation to you is to get what you like and try it. I've got a lot of different plants emersed. Hard part is getting them submerged again. `
