Frogbit

Sold in 1 cup portions.

Frogbit (Hydrocharis morsus-ranae) is also known as Common Frogbit or European Frogbit to distinguish it from the related American Frogbit.

It is a small floating aquatic with kidney shaped leaves and three-petalled with flowers.

The floating leaves grow in rosettes on the water surface, with the roots hanging down into the water.  It is fast growing and spreads rapidly by stolons, surviving the winter as dormant turions which rest on the bottom, rising again to the surface in spring.

Frogbit spreads vigorously on the water surface thereby controlling algae growth by reducing sunlight penetration.   It also absorbs the nutrients that would otherwise be utilized by algae.
