Myriophyllum spicatum, an introduced-from-abroad aquatic perennial herb, inhabits marshy places. Stems extend long and branch, with four pinnatifid leaves, 2-3.5cm in length, each in whorls at nodes. Light yellow flowers set themselves in 3-8cm-long racemes, having emerged from underwater; male flowers position themselves on the upper parts and female flowers on the lower portions. The flowers are 4-petaled on both males and females. Bloom time: May-October.
