Common Waterweed

Common Waterweed

Elodea canadensis
color elodeaelodea
This plant is somewhat uncommon in Cocktown Creek. Look for small, flattened leaves with smooth edges. The leaves of this plant are arranged in groups of three around the stem and sometimes curl slightly. May be found during both the Fall and Spring seasons. This SAV species has little wildlife value as food, although it can provide shelter for small fish.
