Plants By Type
Pickerelweed - Pontederia cordata
Pickerelweed is a North American native, monocotyledonous aquatic plant. This plant grows in a variety of wetlands in a large range from eastern Canada south to Argentina. They grow in rivers and the Everglades. This plant is an emergent plant that is usually in flooded areas, so it is dependent on aerenchyma in the stem to carry oxygen to the roots. It is usually found in areas where the water level fluctuates.
