Egeria densa / Ookanadamo オオカナダモ

Egeria densa, a naturalized-in-Japan Argentina perennial plant, is growing wild in the water. Stems extend long in the water, 1.5-3cm long, linear-shaped, and generally in whorls of 4-5. This species is originally dioecious; however, in Japan, only males exist. Therefore, proliferation takes place employing vegetative propagation. Bloom time: June-October.
