- Appendaged Waterleaf
Flowers of appendaged waterleaf open wide, while the Virginia variety stay more closed. Appendated WL has a broad, maple-like leave, while Virginia WL leaves are very deeply lobed, almost divided.
We started out as wildflowers from the bicycle trails of western Pennsylvania, but we've grown!
