Did you know?
There are three classifications of aquatic weeds in Australia today. These are: emergent, floating, free-floating and submerged.
What plants grow around ponds, dams & lakes?
Floating plants are found on the surface of water, unattached to a ‘base’ or substrate which some plants gain their nutrients from. These plants come in various sizes from small (Duck Weed) to large (Salvinia). Most floating plants have roots that hang in the water, attached to the main ‘body’ of the plant.
Submerged plants are rooted beneath the surface and have most of their mass underwater. Featuring soft stems, these types of aquatic plants don’t often rise above the water, though they may be seen sticking out above the surface on occasion.
Emergent plants have roots and can often be found along a shoreline. These floating plants (Cattails) stand on the surface of the water, with stiff stems that hold them upright.
Are all aquatic plants bad?
No. There are many types of aquatic vegetation that do great things for your water quality and the health of any animals living in it. Our aquatic plant identification service will help you ensure that you’re only targeting and removing harmful plants.
