About the Water Hyacinth
The Eichoohrnia Crassipes (Water Hyacinth)
There is plenty of research and documentation about the water hyacinth on university extension websites. Find yours on my Extension Offices List and search ‘water hyacinth’ on their site. I am will bet money on this plant being invasive (on the naughty list) in your state so be sure to read up on how to grow this plant properly. The Water Hyacinth is NOT native to North America. It was brought here as an ornamental plant from the Amazon.
Images of the Water Hyacinth
Below are a few of my favorite photos from my home garden that were mentioned in the featured video.
In the video, I talk about our big pond. Here is a photo of Oliver coming out of the 1/4 acre pond on our property here in Ohio. The pup loves swimming in the pond so it is important to keep it healthy.
