Parrot feather, Myriophyllum aquaticum, is native to the Amazon Basin of South America and is considered an invasive aquatic weed in North America, Europe, Africa, Japan, and Australia. Thick mats of this plant can slow water flow, impede boat traffic, and severely impact the ecology of the infested body of water.
