Re: Considering Edible Plants grown in water (pond, paddy)

One of the parks we go to with the dog has a lot of arrowhead growing wild on the creek bed edges. I didn't realize until I looked it up, that arrowhead is the same as duck potato. It was an important food source for Native Americans and is a native plant in most of the country. That same creek farther down has a bunch of lotus. American lotus is native in the eastern half of the country.

If/ when I eventually get a pond installed, I may come and steal some of these ....
