Noted for it's arrowhead-shaped leaves and three-petaled white flowers, this native plant is found growing in shallow water or on wet, muddy banks. Commonly known as Arrowhead, Indian Potatoes, or Wapatos, the edible rhizomes of this wetland plant were once a vital food source for the Native American's. They would wade in the water, uprooting the tubers with their toes, and collecting them as they floated to the surface. To this day there are some that enjoy carrying on this tradition! Both the seeds and tubers are an important food source for waterfowl, hence the name Duck Potato. Commonly used today in pond restorations.
