Pickerelweed

Pontederia Cordata

The preferred growing conditions are full to partial sun and shallow water to wet mucky soil. Pickerelweed is an emergent aquatic plant that prefers marshes, swamps, bogs, and protected areas of rivers that are slow moving.  The nectar of the flower attracts bees and sometimes butterflies. Ducks, deer and other animals may eat the large seeds. It provides important cover for fish and other aquatic life.
