Parrots Feather is a member of the water-milfoil family, and is a herbaceous aquatic perennial that gets its name from the feather-like appearance of its blue-green leaves. Parrots Feather may be used as a submerged or floating pond plant. It has feathery blue-green foliage and its stems can grow from 3-10" long.
Parrots Feather has lush green texture that assists in shading the pond and also provides a hiding place plus spawning material for koi and goldfish. Because of its capability of establishing itself in wet soil above the water, Parrots Feather can be used in waterfall and streams, as well as along pond edges. Sold in bundles of 5.
