Arrowhead (Sagittaria sagittifolia) is a lovely native plant with striking arrow-like leaves producing small white flowers with a dark purple centre from June to July. It also has very long narrow submerged leaves. Plant in sun or semi shade, but beware ducks like to eat the bulbs! The plant throws out bulb like tubers during the growing season initially attached to the parent plant which will eventually detach -once detached the bulb should be pushed back into the pot as it will grow next year’s plant, and any other bulbs can be planted in separate baskets to create new plants.
Please note the stems and leaves, much like the Water plantain, are very fragile and can easily get damaged during packing or transport but these can be trimmed back and it will soon grow replacements.
This is one of our favourite natives, well behaved, really attractive foliage and very pretty flowers when many others are going over.
Sagittaria refers to the arrow shaped leaves
