Sagittaria natans is a species of flowering plant in the water plantain family. It is native to northern Europe and Asia and often cultivated elsewhere as an aquatic ornamental in aquaria and artificial ponds. It is widespread across much of the Russian Federation and reported also from Finland, Sweden, Mongolia, Japan, Korea, Kazakhstan and China (Heilongjiang, Jilin, Liaoning, Nei Mongol, Xinjiang).[2][3]

Sagittaria natans is an aquatic plant, growing in slow-moving and stagnant water bodies such as ponds and small streams. It has floating leaves that are linear, heart-shaped or arrow-shaped.[3][4]
