A for Aquatic Plant – Word Up!

Aquatic Plant
\əˈkwatɪk plɑːnt\
There are three main categories of aquatic plant: submerged, marginal and floating.
An example of a submerged aquatic plant is a water lily and an example of a floating aquatic plant is a water hyacinth. A marginal aquatic plant is one which grows with its roots under the water and the rest of the plant above the surface of the water such as the Flag Iris, seen here growing by a stream.
