Sagittaria latifolia - Broadleaf Arrowhead, Duck Potato
Arrowhead is often used in pond restorations and is well known to most water gardeners. It’s called Duck Potato because it has been said the tubers are a food source for water fowl. The Native Americans ate the tubers much like we eat potatoes, and called it Wapato. This special plant will grow submerged in water or on the muddy banks of ponds. The small white flowers are whorled on spikes above the arrow-shaped leaves. A perfect choice for your Bog or Water Garden!
