Sagittaria weatherbiana Fernald. clade: Graminea Group, Secundifolia Complex. Phen: Apr-Jun. Hab: Fresh to brackish marshes, tidal cypress-gum swamps, streambanks, pineland pools. Dist: Se. VA south to Panhandle FL.
Origin/Endemic status: Endemic
Taxonomy Comments: Isozyme studies by Hauber & Legé (1999) provide evidence that this taxon should be given species status; its genetic identity with var. graminea is low, and comparable to the difference between S. graminea (in the narrow sense) and S. platyphylla.
