I'm in SE MI and despite the fact the local DNR claims such plants like parrots feather are invasive, I've yet to keep it alive during the winter, except maybe this year as I put some under my tent, while still putting some in the basement. I'm just surprised to hear the pickerel rush as invasive. Oh, I can see it would do well but invasive to me means it's a weed. I've had my crop for probably 7 years now and I have maybe two oil pans full. I moved it this year to a more 'wetland' situation and out of the pond proper, but that is more because of esthetics. I guess I'll see if the move makes it grow to obnoxious limits!
