This common native plant grows in shallow water in ponds and smaller woodland areas of permanent water. These were seen in a rather small water hole in the woods in Alton. It is also known as cow-slip and yellow water lily. It is a source of food for deer, beaver, and muskrats, and its thick stands serve as a spawning area for many small fish species. Many primitive people have used, and still use, it for food and medicines, including native Americans of this area in pre-colonial times.
