Mary I can't answer your question(s) for your area so I hope
someone else can. Ian tells me that for the area around Toronto Can
Ii lacustris, pseudacorus, versicolor, vriginica & brevicaulis are
what we should be looking for. He also says that I setosa isn't in
this area, nor I virginica virginica but I virginica shevrei is.
Right now i am looking for pictures of all these species if anyone
can tell me. TIA. 

While I was looking for pictures in the wildflower book i saw one
of I fulva which is rust coloured and which occurs in Missouri 'n
area. Could anyone tell me where I could get this or seeds? TIA.
I'm just wondering if it might grow with lots of pampering.
