Tropical / Parrot Feather

Parrot’s Feather

Myriophyllum aquaticum

Hardy Plant Bloody Dock

Native to Central and South America, Parrot’s feather is named for the feather-like appearance of its leaves. Growing both above and below the water, it will produce submerged as well as emergent leaves. So, in order to get more of the above-water feathery appearance, plant this next to something that will give its stems above-water support, such as rocks near the edge of the pond, or water lily pads.
