The seven species of water hyacinths comprise the genus Eichhornia of free-floating perennial aquatic plants native to tropical South America.
One of the fastest growing plants known, water hyacinth reproduces primarily by way of runners or stolons, eventually forming daughter plants.
In many areas they, particularly E.
crassipes, are important and pernicious invasive species.
