  Recommended Planting Range



Water shield is an aquatic plant that grows in quiet shallow water, mostly in northern lakes. It has small oval leaves that float on the surface. It looks something like a small water lilly, but the leaves don't have a notch on the margin, and the stem attaches at the center of the leaf rather than along the edge.
