Another of our common aquatic plants (see, Water Lily and Hat pins). Pickerel weed grows in the still shallows of ponds; it is often found along with water lilies, though I have found that pickerel weed is generally less frequent than the water lilies. The small blue flowers of the pickerel weed cluster together at the top of a clublike stalk. Its leaves, arising from the bottom, are: large, glossy and arrowhead shaped. The nutlike seeds are edible and the young leaf stalks can be cooked as greens.
