Bull Tongue

The bull tongue plants are named for the wide, long, linear nature of their leaves which presumably resemble the tongues of bulls.  However, with my serious cowboy experiences limited to riding a broom-handle horse at a young age, I’ll have to leave the verification of this resemblance to others.

Most Sagittaria flowers seem to be similar, and while it may be relatively easy to identify a plant as a Sagittaria, telling the different species apart generally requires more effort.
