Marsilea mutica (Aquatic) (Water Clover) - As with all the Marsilea described, the foliage on this species resembles a four-leaf clover. This particular variety has reddish-brown stripes that split the darker green on the top half of the leaflets and the lighter green of the lower half. When the four leaflets are open, the pattern on the individual leaflets come together to create a charming design. It reaches 4 to 12 inches tall, spreads, and will grow in sun or shade. It does best when planted 4 inches to 9 inches below the surface of the water. It also will grow in damp soil. It is very cold hardy - it will take temperatures below 15 degrees F.  The information displayed on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations that we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how it has performed in our crops out in the nursery field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well, and welcome hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information we do not mention that would aid others in growing Marsilea mutica.
