Water Hyacinth, or Eichornia crassipes is considered a
noxious weed by Arizona, Florida, and South Carolina. 
Any plants offered can neither originate nor be sent
to these states.  This plant isn't cold hardy so I
don't know of any restrictions in our colder states,
but please be cognizant of what you do with this
plant.  Its close relative, the anchored Hyacinth, or
Eichornia azurea is considered a Federal Noxous weed
and cannot be sent across state lines. Water Hyacinth
is one of the plants associated with the demise of
some cichlids in Lake Victoria.
