Floating Bur Reed is a common floating plant in shallow portions of Conway Lake. It some areas it can become abundant, practically covering the surface of the water. The leaves are flat, thin (less than 1" across), and long (up to 40" in length). The tips are rounded and elongate. Flower heads are white to brownish spiky spheres. Each flower is unisexual (either male or female) with flowers of both sexes on the same plant.
