Invasive water weed by GDD
I got it when I bought some water lilies, didn't seem that bad until yesterday when I tugged at it and the whole entire pond moved at the same time. I chopped some of it out and moved the rest within the pond to allow the water lily to flower. Obviously the difficulty is damselfly eggs, sporn,...
