Kral's Water Plantain

Kral's Water Plantain is an endangered aquatic plant that grows in Little River. It can be found just below the surface of the river. You may notice it on the rocks near the river. It grows about four inches tall with a pointed tip.

Little is known about the reproduction of this plant. The species is clonal (all connected through one root system) and reproduction is primarily asexual (single parent). Flowering occurs from May until July. This plant needs clean water to survive. Water pollution is one of the reasons that the plant has become endangered.
