I was just told by an online nursury that water celery is valsenaria
americana and is a submergent grass. huh
( was complaining to them that the plant they sent was not water celery)


John,

That is the correct botanical name for water celery.

Joe



But wait. Water celery could also be Oenanthe javanica.
Guess we should always use botanical names.


Joe



That is the name that I recognize.

Water Celery as Vallisneria americana.

or O. stolonifera Wall

It's valsenaria americana if you talk to any wildlife enforcement officer.
