Description:

Frogbit is a native plant that can be floating or rooted. It occurs in many water types throughout Florida. It is only a few inches around, and the green heart shaped leaves resemble a miniature water lily that floats on the waters surface. The blossoms are 1/4inch, and are pale cream. Frogbit grows very easy and is great for surface coverage and algae elimination.
