The very best in British grown plants

Elodea Canadensis

canadian pondweed


Description - Elodea canadensis is a perennial aquatic plant, or submergent macrophyte, native to most of North America. Canadian waterweed has branching stems 30 cm long with leaves in whorls of 3-4 which are widest above the middle, rounded at the tip and now twisted by recurved. Canadian waterweed is most abundant in nutrient-rich lakes and ponds both in its native and invasive range; however it will also grow in flowing water, even in areas with fast flow, although it rarely forms dense beds in such conditions.
