Curly-leaf pondweed is a non-native, invasive submersed aquatic plant. It is generally the first pondweed to come up in spring and dies in mid-summer. Leaves have undulating and finely serrated edges. Curly-leaf pondweed has caused problems in lakes by producing extensive mats in 3 to 10 feet of water. The plant is often a problem in lakes with low water clarity, mid-summer Secchi depths of three feet or less.
