Giant Arrowhead (Sagittaria latifolia) has distinctive leaves shaped as the name indicates and stands one to three feet above the water. Flowers are produced freely in a series of spikes.

The Giant Arrowhead is a perennial monocot with rhizomes. The emerging leaves start growing underwater. As they mature, the arrowhead forms pointing to the sky. The leaves can grow to 11" L x 9" W depending on the growing environment. It almost always occur in wetlands (Considered OBL, Obligate Wetland).

The approximately 1" cream to white colored petals are in whorls with most subspecies having burgundy colored spots at their bases. These attractive flowers can be found from June to September. Giant Arrowhead is insect pollinated.

The Giant Arrowhead is mostly aquatic yet can be found at your pond edges in shallow, ephemeral water, sometimes occurring in tidal mud flats. This plant can be found across much of North and South America. However, the distribution across the United States is somewhat disjoint, known to occur in some New England and Middle Atlantic States, across the southeastern states, Michigan, and in California.

William Tricker (1853-1916) started commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's. He began experimenting in hybridizing water lilies and what helps their growth. The shape, colors and hardiness of his beautiful aquatic plants has withstood the test of time.

In the early 1890's, hybridization of water lilies gave him a reputation as a leader in aquatic plants. He established a water lily nursery and company in both Ohio and Pennsylvania that were passed down to his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker catalog was mailed to customers across the nation.
