Marsilea minuta (Aquatic) (Miniature Water Clover) - This small Marsilea only grows to a couple inches high and prefers growing on saturated soil to very shallow water. The tiny leaflets are unequal in size with the outer ones being somewhat larger. An attractive feature is the marking on the leaflet. At the base there is a small light colored oval that has at its inner side a darker dot. This could possibly be used effectively at the base of bonsai specimens. It is hardy to about 20 degrees F.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We will also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information about this plant, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Marsilea minuta (Aquatic).
