Are there different species of Water Hyacinth???

14 years ago

I purchased water hyacinth in May via internet. The plants upon arrival were small as expected. The plants have now spread with many, many baby shoots but have not grown tall nor do they have the lush-green color like in past seasons.

bNormally by this time of the season, I'm weeding out the lush-green hyacinth but not this year. Is it possible I was sent miniature hyacinth or is it our weather since our spring (CT) was chilly and we've only had 3 days of above 90. Anyone in New England experiencing this slow growth?

Thanks much and happy ponding.
