Alisma Subcordatum- Water Plantain
This Alisma subcordatum- Water Plantain this aquatic plant is native to the eastern and central parts of the United States, mainly from New England to Georgia. It is also found farther north in the Canadian provinces of Manitoba and New Brunswick. Growing to about three to four feet in height, it prefers to establish in mud found in still or slow-moving water. Plants are found commonly in marshes, bogs, shallow lakes, pond margins, low streams, and along the shore of calm rivers. Hardiness zones range from three to eight. Water Plantains prefer full sun but tolerate partial shade. Their preferred habitat includes human-disturbed ditches where moisture accumulates, artificial ponds, and aquatic gardens. Plants thrive in fine soils, loam, clay, and sand. While this new species possesses a high anaerobic tolerance, allowing it to succeed even with low oxygen levels, it is susceptible to drought.
Alisma subcordatum grows from a single, edible, tuberous, corm-like crown - Water Plantain
The active growing season is from Spring to Summer. The green, oval-shaped leaves appear only above the water's surface and cluster at the base of the stem. Leaves are shaped much like the common wild plantain found in lawns and sidewalk cracks. The main stem grows tall with a multi-branched appearance which terminates into a showy flower cluster. The growth rate is moderate, but the plant is slow to regenerate after harvesting. It is not an aggressive spreader. One-inch three-petal white flowers (which appear similar to sprays of Baby's Breath) bloom in late spring, starting in June and up until early October. The inconspicuous brown seeds provide nourishment to several species of waterfowl and game birds.
Water Plantain propagates through moderate seed spread, root extension, and sprigs.
However, the seeds only sprout under ideal conditions. The best way to reproduce the plant is by splitting the corms. Buy online Alisma subcordatum- Water Plantain
