Lesser Water Hyacinth

Monochoria vaginalis


Not a water hyacinth but similar. Cropped the first shot for a close up view.


All the big houses of zamindars of feudal lords had personal ponds (sometimes multiples) This was growing on the banks of one such pond at Sen-bati, Guptipara, West Bengal, India
