Bog bean

Menyanthes trifoliata

Bog bean (Menyanthes trifoliata)

This is an excellent plant to "hide" the edges of our pond.  It has established itself by spreading and rooting into the rocks around the pond edge.  It is an early spring flowering plant and is one of the food plants of the elephant hawk moth larvae.
