We have just put in a new garden pond and I am wanting some information on which water plants are perrenials and how to winter them. Any info would be appreciated.

Tracy, you might also try finding a pond close by and digging up some of the plants from it. When I go to the nurseries and pet stores I see all kinds of native plants from our nearby ponds being sold for ridiculous prices when you can easily get your own. I have dug up cat-tails marsh marigolds and wild lily pads. I've seen all of these for sale in the nurseries for no less than $7.00 each. If you can find them you just put them in a pot with dirt( I lined my pots with landscape fabric first to save muddying my water)put gravel or decorative rocks on top and put them in the water. There are lots of interesting things out there and it's a lot of fun to look for your own. From the nurseries though I did get a unicorn rush and a plant called a lotus which they tell me are hardy in our zone 3 climate.
