Bog Plants Bog plants are usually found at the water's edge in shallow water. Their roots grow underwater and their foliage emerges. These bog garden water plants are shipped in small pots and should be repotted in individual containers of approximately one to three gallons capacity and submerged to a depth of two to three inches.

A bog is a wetland that accumulates peat, a deposit of dead plant material—often mosses, and in a majority of cases, sphagnum moss. It is one of the four main types of wetlands. Other names for bogs include mire, quagmire, and muskeg; alkaline mires are called fens.
Wet Bog plants are marked and are happy in waterlogged soil or wet mud. These are really pond plants capable of having their crown at frost level and their roots in permanently wet mud and can be found in the Pond plant category.
Peat moss is the most common plant found in bogs around the world. Peat moss, also known as “Sphagnum Moss” produces acids which other bog plants need in order to survive. Peat moss is a medium that is ideal for growing other bog plants because its large, sponge-like cavities hold air, water and nutrients.
Plants decay slowly in bogs, because flooding prevents a healthy flow of oxygen from the atmosphere. Bog soils are oxygen- and nutrient-poor, and are much more acidic than other soils. Eventually, watery bogs become choked with living and decaying plants. These slowly decaying plants become the main components of the bog's soggy soil, called histosol.
The Northern Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia purpurea) overcomes the nutrient deficiencies of bog life by capturing insects in pools of water in its leaves and digesting them with the help of some local bacteria. The Northern Pitcher Plant's flower looks much like the Sweet Pitcher Plant's (see below).
