Re: ponds/plants

The Salvinia are definitely not as attractive nor as beneficial in filtration 
as the Water Hyacinth and lettuce.  The Water Hyacinth have the most 
beautiful bloom, looking much like a peacock feather (not in texture).  The water 
lettuce does bloom, but only tiny white flowers within the lettuce.  The salvinia 
does not bloom at all, has very minimal roots, and multiplies even faster than 
the Water hyacinth or lettuce.  So probably not the greatest addition to a 
zone 9

Water hyacinth are legal here, so that's no problem.  I'll just have to find 
a source.  I had not heard of salvinias before until you mentioned them.  
have to look for them when I'm ready to stock my pond.
