Pontederia cordata 'We-Du White' is a white flowering form of the North American (Maine to Texas) native wetland perennial, pickerel weed. The spade-shaped green leaves are held upright by 3' tall, fleshy green stems. In early summer, the winter-deciduous clumps are topped with bottle brush-like spikes of small flowers. While purple flowers are the norm, white flowers rarely occur, so we have named this old clone after the former We-Du Nursery, which sold it. Pickerel weed thrives in full sun, where they grow best in shallow water or soggy soils that never dry out. When happy, they can spread and take up large areas, so site accordingly. They also make stunning container plants.
