Duck Potato plants (Sagittaria latifolia) are flowering at Phinizy Swamp. The flowers are interesting to look at, with white petals and small green balls on the flower stalk.
Earlier in the summer, you might remember that I was comparing two fairly similar green-leafed plants and figuring out what they were (see http://www.priscillahollingsworth.com/news/arrow-arum-and-duck-potato-or-peltandra-virginica-and-sagittaria-latifolia).
But now, the Arrow Arum plants (Peltandra virginica) are nowhere to be seen. What happened to them? If you were counting on gathering plants to eat, you'd be happy about this!
