Arrowhead

arrowhead-wildflower

Sagittaria latifolia

Appears: Summer and fall, perennial

Native to Wisconsin

About 1-2 feet tall

Find it along riverbanks and lakes or even right in the water. We’ve seen it rising up in shallow marsh water among lily pads as well. The large arrowhead shaped leaves are easily recognized even if the flowers are yet to bloom.
