MN native plant

I was up in Cook, MN for a wedding and I found this while wandering near the lodge. It was growing out of a very very small "creek" near Elbow Lake.

Anyone have a clue what it might be?

Neat looking. Some kind of arrowhead plant. Saggitaria subulata probably. If you read the hunger games, it's the lead characters namesake.

Google searched a bit and found it is in the Sagittaria family; a common name for it is Tule Potato. Looks very similar to the Lasia spinosa that Hydrophyte has, minus the coolness factor and the sharp thorns.

I have a fat lot of that growing in a 5.5 on the porch. Propogates readily via runners. Flowers are white and smaller than a nicke. Plant grows to about 3 feet from the crown.

it could well be Peltandra virginica the bloom would be a great decider.. is it like a crypt/ peace lily or is it more like the small white flowers on a sword or other Sags? the two plants generally look almost identical but their flowers and resulting seeds are extremely different

Let me know if you have any success with it in your tank. I've wanted to set up a MN riparium inspired by the watersheds around me. Cool find!
