Sago Pondweed Identification (Potamogeton pectinatus)
Sago Pondweed is a very common species of submersed plant that is found in both lakes and ponds. It’s usually found in depths of 1-2 meters and is a bottom-rooting species. It can grow in a variety of sediments and water conditions.
When viewed from the surface of the water, Sago Pondweed can resemble long strands of grass growing up from the bottom. Its leaves are 3-10 cm long and .5-1.5 mm wide.
The plant’s flowers and fruit are produced on a slender stalk (3-10 cm long) that may be submersed or floating on the water surface. The flowers and fruit are arranged in small whorls that are slightly spaced apart on the stalk (creating the appearance of beads on a string).
