Wild Celery

Wild celery: water
Wild celery grows in aquatic environments and has adapted over time to use water to its reproductive advantage. This species disperses little pollen "boats" that float around until they hit the stigmas on female flowers of other wild celery plants. (The stigma is the sticky section of a flower that receives pollen.)
