|Wigweed in summer|
Bulbous aquatic plant of the same family as the flyner. The wigweed is anchored to the bottom of the lake thanks to its root filaments.
While it’s aerial cousin has a bag filled with gas to rise it into the sky, the wigweed develops its paunchy body filled with air from which emerge fuschia flowers gathered in clusters around a slender stem.
The wigweed was once used as a natural float for the Tryker’s pontoons. With the evolution of building techniques it has since lost all interest other than aesthetic.
