Aquatic Weed Identification

Discover what types of weeds you may need to watch out for in your waterbody, or identify existing weeds and discover treatments for them.

There are three categories of aquatic weeds you should be aware of:

Emergent Weeds

Weeds that have stems and leaves protruding above the water's surface. These water weeds have roots anchored to the substrate, lakebed or floor of the water body.

Free Floating Weeds

Weeds with stems, leaves or flowers that may or may not protrude above the water's surface. These water weeds have roots that are not attached to the substrate, lakebed or floor of the water body.

Submerged Weeds

Submerged aquatic plants grow below the water's surface, whether attached to substrate or not. Some submerged aquatic plants may spend part of their life cycle above the water’s surface.
