Pontederia cordata

Common name pickerel rush; pickerelweed
Family pontederiaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers blue
Size 1-4'
Cultural notes marginal aquatic

Commonly used marginal pond or bog plant. It appears on the invasives list for several US states, but is not considered a noxious weed in Pennsylvania - it's certainly not an invasive exotic, since it's native to the US. It won't escape our little aquatic ecosystem.
