Water Hyacinth Eichhoria crassipes


 Sometimes you can have too much of a good thing.  Unfortunately this is true for this beauty.  In Texas, Water Hyacinth is considered an invasive species.  I feel fine growing it in my tiny little garden pot pond as there is no way it can escape into the wild.  The flowers are gorgeous and remind me of peacocks.  Don't ask me for any however, as I have no desire to ruin any of the natural habitats in Texas.
