Open your plants and inspect the same day received. We offer 3 days to report any problems with your order. Bare root plants need to be planted within 2-3 days of receiving unless weather-related problems prohibit planting.

Coontail is the most common aquatic plant found in the United States. It's also found in other parts of the world, such as Canada and Mexico. However, the plant is not confined to just the North American area.
The Coontail, which lives entirely underwater, is straight and flat, but its leaves are needlelike. The plant makes one think of a raccoon's tail, where "Coontail" comes from. The plant is somewhat cord-like. However, it is also a flexible plant.
The plant has up to 12 leaves per whorl, and it bears a small amount of small fruit. The fruit is oval, and the fruit and the rest of the Coontail are wildlife food for species such as ducks. Furthermore, decomposition provides food for other species when the plant dies. However, it is not a plant that humans should eat because it is poisonous if ingested.
The Coontail is a perennial plant. It thrives in shallow water to as much as water that is 18 feet deep.
Although the plant has no roots, it's found at the bottom of water but can sometimes float freely.
The Coontail creates fish habitat, improves water clarity, and provides food for species. It also provides cover for small fish from their predators.
