  Curly-Leaf Pondweed
  • What is it?  This underwater plant usually grows in lake water 3 to 10 feet deep.  Its wavy leaves with fine-toothed edges make it appear "crispy".  It was accidentally introduced when common carp were
    stocked in North America.
     
  • What's the problem? This invader grows well in cold temperatures,
    even under ice.  It begins early in the spring and shades out native plants, forming dense mats that make it tough to boat or swim.  When curly-leaf pondweed dies back in mid-summer it releases nutrients which can cause algal blooms and other problems.
     
  • How is it spread? It is easily spread by boats and trailers.  This plant
    can spread from fragments on a few inches long.
     
  • How do I recognize it?
    • Summer foliage described as thick, waxy & "crispy"
    • Curly edged leaves look like lasagna noodles
    • Leaf placement is alternate along stem
    • Leaves are  approx .25" - .5" wide & 1.25" - 4.75" long
    • Leaves have fine serrations along the edges
       

     
  • Look alike plants.  There are many other types of native Pondweeds that look similar but pose no threat.  The most similar is the Clasping-Leaf Pondweed.  However, its leaves have a more pointed tip and lack the serrated edges of the Curly-Leaf variety.
