Common water-crowfoot

Also called: white water-crowfoot

This plant grows well in our pond. I found this plant in nature. The flowers are 7 to 20 mm. This plant adds oxygen to the water, an advantage when you have fish in your pond. Both the leaves under and on the water can be eaten fresh or dried. (JE)
