    The red stuff is Azolla filiculoides. The green stuff is Myriophyllum aquaticum.

    Are the red stuff good for anything? Never mind!:D

    BTW, my Z. oblongifolium looks identical to your Z. trivalve. I guess one of them might be mislabeled.

    Marni, I'm having much of the farm labor contracted out this year. My knees love it.

    Dale, Yours looks very different than mine. The leaves even look different.
    Thanks for the photo, Dale.
