Sago Pondweed is a very common species of submersed plant that is
found in both lakes and ponds. When viewed from the surface of the
water, it can resemble long strands of grass growing up from the bottom.
The leaves are very thin and about the same size of a needle.
The leaves grow in thick layers and originate from a sheath. The plant’s
flowers and fruit are produced on a slender stalk that may be submersed
or floating on the water surface.
