Water Hyacinth is a free floating, aquatic herb with broad glossy green leaves, spongy leaf stalks and blue to mauve flowers.  It is a serious weed as it invades slow flowing freshwater in tropical and subtropical areas, where it obstructs waterways, reduces fish production, and harbours mosquitoes. As it forms a dense mat Water Hyacinth can interfere with many recreational activities as well as reducing the oxygen content in the water impacting on native plants and animals and making water unfit for drinking by humans and livestock.
