Pickerelweed

Pickerelweed - Pontederia cordata. The pickerelweed is an aquatic plant that is part of the water hyacinth family. Its roots and stem are situated beneath the surface of the water, and it has long stems and leaves that rise above the water. The plant may extend up to 3.5 feet beyond the surface of the water. They have a distinctive flowering appearance with elongated purple-blue flower stems that rise several inches above the rest of the leaves on the plant. These flower stems contain several small flowers that grow in rings along the step. Flowers do not bloom all at once, so a stem will retain its flowered appearance for several days at a time. Some rarer variants of pickerelweed may have flowers with either yellow or white petals. The leaves for pickerelweed are a deep green color with a heart-shaped appearance. They are roughly twice as long as they are full, and the lobes are rounded. Pickerelweed primarily grows in shallow water with the minimum current.
