Broadleaved arrowhead

(Sagittaria Latifolia)

Arrowhead is typically heterophyllic, meaning that its leaves have different shapes. Underwater leaves resemble thin threads with a length of up to 1.5m. Water surface leaves are oval-shaped. Above water leaves resemble 25-30cm long arrows. These leaves gave the plant its generic name. The arrowhead is frost-hardy since in winter it hides at the bottom of the water in the mud.
