Native Wetland Plants

Alisma subcordatum

Water plantain

Alisma subcordatum, water plantain, is a clump forming seed colonizer which thrives in permanently inundated quiet water. Water plantain becomes recognizable early in the growing season with its submerged strap like foliage, then emerges to stand 2-4' above the surface with dark green ovate shaped leaves with reddish pedials. From June thru September Alisma produces Baby's Breath like white flowers that create a soft misty haze in full sun.
