Curly Leaf Pondweed
At least 65 pondweed species are present in the U.S. All are perennial aquatic herbs with stipules at each leaf. Many species have both submersed and floating leaves. Leaves are typically alternate, although some may be sub-opposite and appear opposite. Introduced from Europe. May grow in up to 15 ft of water. Propagules germinate in fall, overwinter, and resume active growth in early spring before most other submersed plants.
