what are the best plants to put in a pond to limit algae pond has full sunlight all day



water lilies, as their leaves cover a larger area . though when the nutrients run low in the water the algae naturaly die back. so plants growing in the margins will aslo help reduce algal grwoth.

Aponogeton (water hawthorne) has leaves that shade the pond and the scent from the flowers is gorgeous. It flowers for 8-9 months of the year and the leaves are always there. I have a photo, number 69 or there abouts if you want to look or you could google it.
