where are you at that your parrot's feather comes back? Here in Mi, seems I have to overwinter it if I want easy access next spring. And how much water is over your parrot's feather? I used to have mine in the pond proper on the marginal edge but the fish and turtles liked it too much. I grow it in it's own pot now and let it crawl down to the pond and attempt to make its way across the surface. I have too many fish for that to be successful, though.
Just a heads up, parrot feather is prohibited in Michigan.

I was going to get some but didn't because of it. :sorry:

Most of these "invasive" plant bans are goofy. We can't buy water hyacinth in IL, but I can drive a few miles north and get all I want. Same with parrot's feather. The idea that these plants will take over the waterways here like they do in more temperate zones? Crazy. My water hyacinths start to rot when the temp falls below 50 degrees, let alone below zero.
