Re: parrot feather

    The plant I've seen referred to most often as "parrot's feather" is 
Myriophyllum aquaticum. Have also heard it called water milfoil. Grows
quickly in both warm and cooler temperatures (I've seen a red form of it
growing wild in the lake here in Canada), doesn't seem to mind hard water,
and the stem will readily branch when you trim the growing tips back. It
does like a lot of light though; if kept without it tends to get leggy and
drop its lower leaves.
