Watershield

Watershield Description:

Watershield is a native perennial weed that provides habitat for fish. The leaves float on the water surface and the stems are firmly rooted. Most commonly found in water up to about 10 feet deep and is widespread in North America. Watershield secretes a number of chemicals that kill or inhibit growth of a wide range of bacteria, algae, and other plants. By this mechanism, watershield kills off competing vegetation.
