      This is a good thread. I hope one day this turns into a sticky reference page at the top of the forum next to Koi Calculators.

      Papyrus it is. It is the dwarf variety which is much more manageable in a pond than the standard variety.
      Sharpen up your pencil and put your thinking cap on for this next one. Name this pond plant.

      Okay, not many posted a guess but I think many had guesses that they did not post. The plant is a melon sword, and the variety is Marble Queen. Now on to the next plant! this one may be easier. Does two pics help?

      It is Thalia, to be more accurate, it is the red stemmed Thalia. It is often confused with canna, as it very similar.

      Now for our next water plant-

      Yesterday's plant was the spider lily, a truly beautiful marginal plant. No responses, but many have the plant and have seen it.
      Today's plant is an even more commonly known plant, and can be fund in ponds as well as areas where it has "wet feet."

      Looks like miniature bamboo but it's probably not bamboo.

      I grow mine in a pot sitting in my pond. Years ago I planted some in the ground and it spread everywhere.

      Horsetail rush grows much like bamboo in that it sends out roots from which new plants grow, and the roots can travel hundreds of feet and producing new plants along the way. I can be planted in pots and placed in the pond, but with only a couple of inches of water over its feet. You were right, the pictured plant was horsetail rush or reed.

      Today's plant is, well, you guess and identify it. It is not as easy as yesterday's. I am posting two pics, one of the bloom and the other of the plant itself. We will get to the green plant later in the second pic.
