Broad-leaved Waterleaf

Hydrophyllum canadense 


A taller and bolder looking relative of H.virginianum with broad, maple-like leaves. Forms colonies on the forest floor. Small whitish flowers with tinges of purple and pink appear in late spring but primarily this species is valued as a ground cover of rich deciduous woodlands. The young leaves and roots are edible and were used in times of scarcity.
