Pond plant grown for its frilly foliage. With its roots submerged in water, it sends out stems covered in feathery leaves in all directions. The stems can grow quite long: the first time we grew this, in our small patio pond in Pennsylvania, they criss-crossed the entire pond. We lost that one at some point, but have recently purchased a new one to live in our new pond here in Texas. As shown at right, it's just a small potted plant for now, but I expect it to grow more exuberant quite soon.
