Grass Leaf Arrowhead Growing and Maintenance Tips

Sagittaria like their roots to be completely submerged in water and can be found near pond edges in a slow moving, body of water. Grows best in full sun however, it will tolerate partial shade. Plant the tubers in the mud at the margins, or in 15-20 cm of water for best results. Sagittaria will naturalize by spreading rhizomes or self-seeding.
