26. Amphibious Persicaria

The painting depicts the aquatic form of this plant with its floating leaves and stems. It requires the still waters of ditches, ponds and lakes in which to grow. The terrestrial form grows in the mud by the water-side and has ascending or erect stems. It flowers in July and August. Whether growing in water or on land it is capable of covering large areas.
