I have this emergent plant in some wetlands and it seems like it might be a good plant to have in my new pond. Its a relatively short plant growing in a dense thicket of them in about 1-6" of water. It had a small white flower when I first found it. Kinda looks like a variety of arrowhead. I won't transplant it without a good ID to enable research. Anyone know what it is? Thanks!

That stuff resembles pickerel weed or maybe Thalia dealbata. If either is correct...you have young plants. Start with these two and let me know if I'm close. The flower isn't doing much for me, but the stem style and leaf leads me to my suggestions.

Those do have the same style stem/leaf. I will try to get a better flower photo with it opened rather than closed for the night - IIRC it was a simple single white flower. Thanks!

What is throwing me is the report of a white flower. If not for that, I would guess pickerel weed. There is a variety of white-flowered pickerel weed, but the flowers form a spike. My purple pickerel weed is currently flowering profusely, so there is no mistaking it. Maybe duck potato?

ugh! dang it - was up there this weekend but forgot to check if they are still flowering. We have a skid steer with a forestry head grinding down overgrown buttonbush in the swamp and my mind was elsewhere.

Thinking it might be mud plantain

Ah! I like that. Thats' what the flower looked like as I recall - white in my case. This page says the flower opens early in the AM then wilts by mid-day. http://www.kswildflower.org/flower_details.php?flowerID=494 Guess I would need to get there early.

Looks like a nice plant for a pond edge.

Thanks Pat

Link says it is related to pickerel weed which is probably why the leaves look so similar.

It's showing up here too. I have noticed that's it's popping around 18" down from the full pool waterline. It's strange I've never seen it in volume before.

Finally got a picture with the flowers open. Confident this is mud plantain as noted. I transplanted some to my new pond. Only downside I see is the link above notes "erratic appearance from year to year".
