  Arrow Leaf Pondweed

 

Vietnam

The flowers of the Arrow Leaf Pondweed grow in dense clusters of 25 to 60 purplish to pale violet flowers, on a spike of 6 to 9 centimeters in length.

 

The spike sprouts from the side of the 0.7 to 1.2 meters high stem, some distance below the large arrow-shaped basal leaf on top.
