Project Description

Floating Heart is also known as Banana Lilly because of its banana shaped roots that store nutrients. Varieties are numerous, producing yellow or white flowers. Leaves are small and resemble a heart with a notch where the stem attaches. It is often mistaken for a miniature water lily.

It grows rooted or as a floating plant and can quickly fill a pond in a couple seasons. Leaves are green above the water and a dull purple below.

Due to its high rate of growth and invasive habits, it is VERY difficult to control. Plan on a long-term program for control.
