Rubyeye Arrowhead plant

RPinSENeFebruary 8, 2014

I'm going to plant some plants on the shoreline or in shallow water of a farm pond, and wonder about Ruby eye arrowhead. They would be planted in the soil in their permanent location. I've seen them listed as zone 5 and warmer, and elsewhere as zone 9. I'm in zone 5.

Thanks Joe, I'll find some of the native ones here, although they can tend to take over an area. I'm interested in getting some shoreline plants established, also will plant some red stem dogwoods and golden willow. I'll want to cut the willows back to ground level each spring or they will quickly become trees.

Arrowhead is a quick snack for any critter with a sweet tooth for salad snacks, if they do grow in numbers from seed, it won't be for long
