FLORA OF ICELAND elements: Potamogeton gramineus, Various-leaved Pondweed

Potamogeton gramineus; the Various-leaved Pondweed is a common pondweed on Iceland. This plant grows both with submerged leaves and floating leaves in ponds and lakes. On Iceland there are a few more Potageton species growing in ponds, lakes, waterways. They can be differentiated by their leaf-shapes. One has to take into account that submerged leaves and surface leaves can differ. On the page of the Red Pondweed a table is presented how to differentiate these species.
