Sagittaria latifolia

Duck Potato

Sagittaria latifolia, Duck potato, is a vigorous aquatic perennial that typically grows 2-4’ tall. Known for its arrowhead-shaped leaves, Sagittaria latifolia commonly grows submerged in shallow water or out of water on wet muddy banks, sloughs, swamps, marshes and margins of streams and ponds. Sagittaria latifolia is easy to naturalize and will colonize by spreading rhizomes as well as self seed.  Duck Potato is a valuable food source for waterfowl.
