Fl. Amer. Sept.2: 370. 1814 (as sagittaefolia)
Phenology: Flowering mid spring–early fall.
Habitat: Freshwater streams, rivers, ponds, and lakes of coastal plain, extending to freshwater tidal areas
Elevation: 0-50 m
Of conservation concern.
Nuphar sagittifolia is probably best treated as a subspecies. Plants intermediate between it and N. advena are treated under N. advena. The clinal variation pattern between the two taxa is apparently maintained via selection by vernalization (C. E. DePoe and E. O. Beal 1969; E. O. Beal and R. M. Southall 1977).
This taxon is the Cape Fear spatterdock of the aquarium trade.
