I don't recall who asked if parrots feather would survive freezing/winter. I just turned on my stream, went to yank out the parrots feather that, when we did freeze, was in a block of ice. It is in one of my small ponds. Never got around to moving it to the big pond. \n\nAnyways, don't toss your parrots feather, the stuff that was in water, even though it was quite often frozen in ice, is growing nice new stems. It looks dead, brown stems, but along those dead looking stems are nice shoots coming out. Give it a chance to start growing again.\nThe only stuff that was dead, was dried up due to being out of the water.
