Arrow Arum - Peltandra virginica

The Arrow Arum, also known as Tuckahoe or Duck Corn, is a bright green perennial aquatic plant with unique arrow-shaped leaves growing from an embedded rootstock.  It grows in attractive clumps. Small white to pale yellow flower spikes bloom in late spring to early summer and later mature into pods of berries. The berry pods weigh down the usually upright clusters of plants until they are eaten or split open. In the wild, the arrow arum can form a stout buffer along ditches or ponds and provides shelter and food for waterfowl and other aquatic animals. They are also found in swamps and wetlands. It keeps to shallow, slow-moving water no more than 18 inches deep.
