American Eelgrass in Harford Co., Maryland (8/30/2016). This photo shows the base of a male American Eelgrass plant, including two flowers located on the ends of short stalks. Look carefully at the pale yellowish flower (nearer to the root mass), and you can see individual grains of pollen inside. In time, the flower bract breaks free from the plant, rises to the surface and releases the pollen.
