Menyanthes trifoliata

Bogbean (Buckbean)

Menyanthes trifoliata, Bogbean, grows in spongy bogs, marshes and shallow water along pond edges. The fleshy green leaves of Menyanthes trifoliata pop out of the water giving way to small white flowers with tiny elegant hairs from May to July.   Bogbean is a wonderful colonizer for pond edges and streams.
