Yellow Pond Lily, also called Spatterdock, brandy-bottle, bullhead lily, is a native water lily which grows in lakes, ponds, and slow-moving rivers. It is a perennial, which means it dies back in the winter, but grows again from the roots each Spring. Yellow Pond Lily has thick leaves, which can be round or heart-shaped. They are large, growing up to 12 inches wide. The leaves are attached to a long stalk which extends down into the water and into the mud below. When the water level drops (especially in rivers, streams, or marshes affected by tides), the leaves will be above the water. When the water level rises again, the leaves will float on the water. The flowers of this plant are yellow, with thick petals. Fruit are shaped like pods and contain many seeds.
