Hey, sorry for delay. Very busy here. I'm not sure without seein a picture, but it really could be either. The rhizomes can multiply pretty fast if they're happy. After a few days, are they growing up, or are they moving horizontally?
Thanks for the reply. Most have definately become new stems and already producing leaves. We had a few hot days and they definately soaked up the sun.
I rebuilt the bridge for a little more safety because my son is on it nonstop when we are outside. I'm sure he will be swimming in it by the end of the summer.
Got some phlox and hosta to plant around the pond, as well as a tiger lotus and an identified lily waiting to sprout.
All of the water hyacinth has died, and I'm on the fence whether or not to buy more.
I took my son fishing the other day and he caught his first fish, a beautiful nice sized red breasted sunfish, although he wanted nothing to do with it once out of the water. But I scored myself and dug up a few arrum(sp?) plants and some sweet grass for along the length of the stream.
Sorry the pics are blurry, my phone even though has a 41 megapixel camera just won't focus nowadays.
