Parrot's Feather Myriophyllum
No pond is complete without Parrots Feather in my humble opinion.
And it is one of my favorites.
I love the way it helps to soften the edges of the pond
with its lacy, feathery look. It is great for fish that
are spawning, because it is nice and soft.
While some fish may eat some pond plants, I have yet to hear of a fish that ate Parrots Feather.
The stems are feathery looking and a medium
bluish green in color.
It can be potted or grown floating on the water.
It is also a great plant to tuck in the rock crevices where it will root and grow out across the pond.
If the plant becomes "leggy" simply pinch off the tips and throw it in the water. It may look wilted for a few days but it will quickly grow new roots.
Very easy to grow
Can also be used with much success in aquariums
This plant can be potted, or the rooted ends tucked into the rocks of a streambed or water fall.
