A trip to a lake today, a man-made lake but it's been there for decades. It's a managed property, there is a bit of woods, reeds at water's edge, but also mown grass not far from the shore. A few wildflowers there, so here is the third I'd like to identify:



These white blooms grew all up the stems of the plant(s). They were tiny, probably no bigger around than a dime coin.

Looks similar to sagittaria blooms. Do you have photos of the rest of the plant?

From the images Isee in a quick search, it's not the same. These flowers grew directly out of that central stalk; the pictures I'm seeing have little lateral stems with three flowers on the end, instead of two by two up the stalk.... (that would be Sagittaria latifolia, and I am not finding much else in the way of flower pictures for these....)

Yes! That final link, the photo is exactly what I saw.

Thanks very much, both of you. Sagittaria cuneata it is.
