Pickerelweed is a vigorous deciduous herbaceous perennial native to southern wetlands.  The glossy arrow-shaped leaves rise well above the water surface and the densely packed soft blue flowers bloom on erect stems in summer through fall. Following the flowers are edible seeds with distinctive toothed ridges.  Flowers best in full sun and rich wet soils.
