it's groing under the water too, has some nice white flowering

whats surprising to me is that it's growing out of the water along the rocks and that it's been 110 degrees out and it's in direct sun and there's very low humidity here in AZ but it does so well

Doesn't look like B. carolinia or colorata but it's possible it's another species

It looks like bacopa monnieri

It does look like bacopa monnieri, but I only know how it looks immersed. Same leaf shape and pattern though.

This is my emergent bacopa tank, post massive trim, mine hasn't flowered. Wiki says flowers are small and white with 4 or 5 petals each.

I'd say its monnieri.

The bacopa monnieri in my pond looks just like that. It trails really nicely.
