Chilensis (Sagittaria platyphylla) is also sometimes referred to as "Broad Leaf Sagittaria". Its leaves are broader than most other Sag's, more similar to the Val's but much stiffer. They can tolerate harder water than many others from its genus.
Sagittaria plants are popular "grassy" plants. They are often confused with the "Val's" from genus Vallisneria, but Sagittaria's typically have stiffer blades while the Val's are usually more delicate and flowing. Sagittaria plants spread by extending "runners" with new small plants from larger plants.
