The attractive, feathery fronds of parrot feather plants (Myriophyllum aquaticum) often encourage the water gardener to use it in a bed or border. The delicate appearance of growing parrot feather compliments other foliage in your water feature or bog garden.
Parrot Feather Information
Stop: before you make the mistake of planting this seemingly innocent specimen in your landscape, you should know that parrot feather information indicates that these plants are highly invasive. Once planted, they have the potential to readily escape cultivation and overwhelm native plants. This has already happened in numerous areas in the United States. Only female specimens of the plant are known to grow in this country and multiply from root division and plant pieces in a process called fragmentation. Tiny bits of the plant have moved through waterways, on boats and located themselves aggressively in many areas. Several states have laws that prohibit growing parrot feather.
Growing Parrot Feather
Growing parrot feather began innocently enough in the United States. The South and Central American native came to the country in the 1800’s to decorate indoor and outdoor aquariums. The attractive, feathery plumes of parrot feather plants took hold and began to choke out native plants. If you choose to use parrot feather plants in your pond or water garden, keep in mind that parrot feather plant care will consist of keeping the plant under control. Keep growing parrot feather in bounds by only using in lined ponds and water features or in containers.
Parrot feather plants grow in fresh water areas from rhizomatous roots. Cutting the plant encourages it to grow, so control can be complicated if it grows to restrict your drainage pipe or begins to destroy beneficial algae. Aquatic herbicides are sometimes effective in parrot feather plant care and control. If you choose to grow parrot feather plants in or around your water feature or pond, make sure it is legal to grow it in your area. Plant only in a controlled situation, such as a container or indoor water feature.
