Double Arrowhead (Sagittaria flore pleno)

Double Flowered Arrowhead (Sagittaria flore pleno) is a shallow water marginal pond plant.  It has also been known as swamp potato. This is probably the most popular arrowhead as it produces flowers that are a mass of white petals on approx. 2 ft stems. In other respects foliage is similar to other arrowheads, being large, glossy and arrow shaped.  The plant naturally reverts back to a tuber in the winter with the new growth appearing in spring.  When purchasing in early spring these plants will naturally present as a tuber which can be planted directly into your ponds to start its growth.
