Description

Decodon Verticillstus- Water Willow

Water Willow is a perennial herb plant with leaf-covered stems and woody stalks. Water willows have opposite-facing or “whorled” leaves. It grows best in swampy areas with still water or very slow streams. Water willow is native to eastern parts of North America and Canada, but the fossil record shows that it once thrived in northern Mexico and parts of Europe. These plants grow in clusters and thickets, but the stems can grow up to 8 feet high. On average most groups reach 2 to 4 feet tall. Water willow grows best in sunlight with partial shade in wet areas about 6 to 12 inches deep. The plants thrive in the USDA Hardiness Zones 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, which is mostly made up of the eastern half of the US. From July to September, the plant produces bunches of bell-shaped flowers that range from deep pink to purple.

In the fall, the leaves of Water Willow turn deep orange and red.

Decodon Verticillstus- Water Willow plant produces many seeds that spread quickly and are eaten by water birds. However, its primary form of spreading is through a cloning system. Stems of the plant that lean over into shallow water can sprout roots and start a brand new plant. These develop stronger root systems than seedlings and can survive harsher conditions, allowing the plant to spread over the water or stay clustered to the shoreline. Though this is an effective way to cover, this plant is relatively uncommon though not exactly rare.

Still, Water Willow habitat is threatened by degrading shorelines, and various efforts have been made to conserve the areas in which they grow.

The plant is suitable for the environment in that it attracts bees, butterflies, fish, and birds .
