Gardeners' Notes:

Little did I realize how well this plant enjoys living in
bog-like conditions.

In the spring, I placed a potted plant of Arrowhead in
a shallow pond. Now that it is September I cannot get
over how much it has grown having constant access to

It has sent out numerous long shoots with roots in
every direction, attaching itself to the soil in pots located
next to and near the Arrowhead.

Very attractive. While it has survived in the pond outdoors
just fine, it can be easily sunburned and thus appreciates
a gentle shade during the hottest part of the day.

A good choice for those who believe they have brown
thumbs. Simply place the pot in a dish of water and
keep the water level in check at all times.

A typical Syngonium in growth, this one is far from typical in its coloration. The new foliage is metallic pink, changing to white with pink veins, then light green with pink veins. It remains stunning year-round in juvenile growth. The vines can be cut off and rooted for new plants.

It is equally at home in a container as in a pot sunk in a water garden.
