more evidently fringed than in our plants. Leafits pointing from two opposite lines, nearly egg-shaped, transparent,
smooth, embracing the stem, pointed, each furnished with a very small earlike appendage. I have never seen any other than barren plants. Linn. Stems hollow, reddish. Scop. Shoots creeping, strap-shaped, the ends rising upwards. Leafits about a line in diameter, flat. Poll. Varies greatly in appearance. The young plants in wet places crowded, upright. Leaves very small, roundish, nearly flat, pellucid, alternate, without appendages. When older, the leaves are large, more closely set, convexo-concare, with scaly appendages at the base, resembling the leares in shape. In some plants, when fully grown, the leaves are roundish; in others spoon-shaped; and in another variety, gathered on the banks of mountain lakes, I have found the leaves green, pellucid, not crowded, almost embracing the stem. Shoots sometimes branched, from one inch to a foot long when growing in running water. Have not found it in flower, Dill. Have frequently found it with fertile heads. Huds. I have found the capsule filled with ripe seeds, but closely enveloped by the leaves at the extremity of the plant, and probably nerer rising above them.
