In case you wanted to learn about this beautiful native Florida emergent wetland plant: Pickerelweed (Pontederia cordata) is a perennial herbaceous emergent aquatic plant native to the American continent from eastern Canada to Argentina. It occurs throughout Florida. It can be found in wetlands, slow-moving streams, edges of ponds and lakes, and in ditches. Pickerelweed typically grows to around 2-4 feet tall. It has large broad leaves up to 6 inches wide and almost twice as long. It has several adaptations to surviving anaerobic conditions including aerenchyma tissue in the stems to supply oxygen to roots as well as metabolic adaptations. Pickerelweed produces large (up to 6 in) spikes covered in flowers ranging from light pink to deep blue hues, and sometimes white that bloom in succession from the bottom up. It tolerates low fertility, partial sunlight, and inundation to at least 30.7 inches (78 cm), but flourishes in fully exposed fertile soils (pH: 6.0 to 8.0) as well as locations permanently inundated up to 12 inches deep in freshwater of <3 parts per thousand salinity. It requires full or partial sun to thrive. Because of their flashy flowers and hardiness, these are great plants to use in a water garden or private water body! They can provide a beautiful aesthetic as well as refuge for many small animals.

Gulf fritillary butterfly hiding on purple pickerelweed (Pontederia cordata). A pretty little swamp flower that is also edible. The seeds can be eaten straight, dried and added to granola, boiled, roasted, or ground into flour. The young leaves can be eaten in salads. . . . #gulffritillary #butterfliesoftheworld #butterfliesofinstagram #wildlifephotography #springwatch #butterflies #wildlife #insects_of_our_world #macrolove #naturepics #naturelovers #nikond3400 #nikon📷 #nikon200500 #macro_mood #macrophotography #insects_macro #asi_es_fauna #ip_insects #macroclique #macro_holic #macrooftheday #loves_macro #macro_highlight #macro_beautiful_world #allkindsofnature #exclusive_wildlife #gu_like_capture

Spent an amazing morning at Corkscrew Swamp yesterday. Saw 33 bird species, (3 of which were lifers), a few reptiles, and many new plants and butterflies. Definitely a place I want to come back to! https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S50510894 #baldcypress #bromeliad #pickerelweed #bandedwatersnake #waterlettuce #stranglingfig

We found this pickerel weed in one of the ponds at Karawatha. We are to treat it but with many eyes having a look around it & a bit of research it got quiet a bit of habitat. This Eastern Sedge Frog was one of many. Well worth a look before ripping in. Time to come up with a new #habitat

I wish we as humans did better to live in harmony with nature. It's sad how people dont like having wildlife in their cities and backyards. These creatures were there before us and are just trying to survive in the new world that we have created. Instead of killing any animals that wander into our backyards, we should learn to respect and appreciate them. . . . . #wetlands #leatherfern #leather #fern #plants #green #greencay #nature #naturalarea #beautiful #pretty #blueskies #pickerelweed #conservation #environmentalprotection #protecttheenvironment #environment #soflo #florida

The arboretum’s new boardwalk and wildflower pond is delightful in so many ways. The #pickerelweed is attracting bumblebees, butterflies, and dragonflies galore! Also, the planks on the walk have sweet little tributes 😍

"Turn! Turn! Turn!" "To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn) There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)..." For me the signal that summer has arrived is the appearance of yellow pond and white water lilies, and pickerelweed, and the end when they're spent for the season. #MalgonquinPhotography #TurnTurnTurn #TheByrds @Algonquin_PP #Algonquin #AlgonquinPark #YellowPondLily #WhiteWaterLily #Pickerelweed #Wildflowers #Landscape
