Pennywort or dollarweed – edible wild plant of Florida


Pennywort grows naturally at the edges of ponds, lakes, canals, and riverbanks. It tends to grow in mats, and sometimes, when the water rises, it floats.
Its green leaves are easily recognizable. They are round and flat and shiny, and the stems attach to the center underside of the leaves. Pennywort is edible raw or cooked. Add it to other salad greens, or cook it with other herbs as a vegetable.
