Sagittaria sagittifolia Flore Plena

Sagittaria sagittifolia Flore Plena
Synonym(s) Sagittaria japonica
Common name Chinese arrowhead; swamp potato
Family alismataceae
Life cycle perennial (Z7-10)
Flowers white (late summer)
Size 20-28"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes marginal aquatic (water 0-5" deep)

Part of our plant package for the bog filtration area of our new pond. It may not be fully hardy, judging by the plant tag it came with. The tag said 'flore plena' which indicates that the white flowers should be double, but our plants appear to be single (just one row of petals).

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
