American Lotus has circular floating leaves attached to stems that are anchored in the soil. The leaves create a bowl-like appearance and do not lay flat on the water surface. The height of the plant can vary but is usually well above the surface of the water. Yellow flowers emerge from the middle of the plant, and form an inverted, cone-like structure.
Recreational activities such as swimming, fishing, and boating can be impaired, prevented.
Excessive Aquatic weeds greatly detract from the aesthetic appeal and possible value of the overall property.
Thick excessive growth around the shoreline can encourage and increase population of frogs, snakes, muskrats, and alligators where applicable.
Aquatic weed overgrowth is ideal for algae growth and leads to increased insect growth for mosquitos.
Too many weeds impede water flow in drainage ditches, irrigation canals, and culverts, causing water to back up.
American Lotus can be found in most of the contiguous states.
