horned colorbw hpw

This plant is very similar to Slender Pondweed. One important difference is that the Horned Pondweed has leaves that grow opposite one another along the stem. The Horned Pondweed has small "horn-like" seeds that grow between the leaves and the stem during the early Spring. This species has only been found in Cocktown Creek in the Spring. This plant is eaten by waterfowl.
