Types of Water Plants

There are several types of water plants. Some grow out of the water, along the water’s edge, and are called “emergents”.

Some have their leaves floating on the surface of the water.

Others grow completely submerged in the water, with their roots in the soil.

providing food and shelter
Providing Food and Shelter
  • In marshes and wetlands, water plants provide food and shelter for certain birds and water animals, butthese wetlands have to be watched carefully for destruction of the plants by birds or disease.

cattails
Cattails
  • Cattails are a very common freshwater plant. They can grow to be very tall, as much as nine feet tall.
  • Cattails are different because they have tall flowers that contain fluffy seeds wrapped in bundles. In the late summer or early fall the seeds are released to make new plants. The seeds can only grow if they land in water.

water lilies
Water Lilies
  • There are three kinds of water lilies: night, tropical and hardy. Night lilies bloom at night.
  • The root of the lily grows in mud at the bottom of the pond.
  • There are endangered because wetlands are endangered.
  • They can be found on the edge of ponds and lakes in shallow water.
