This plant is growing in the wetlands behind my house. I'm wondering if it's semi-aquatic, or even a semi-aquatic that can live underwater.
It would be awesome to just go out to my back yard to get plants for my tanks. Anyone know what it is?

It looks familiar. Don't know the name. But if it is the same plant it will not grow submerged and after it flowers it dies back. It has a short life span as a plant. Keep an eye on it and take some more photos as it goes through its life cycle.
You can contact your Department of Natural Resources to have this plant id'd or possibly a local nature center.

here's a link for other plants you can find. http://www.ct.gov/caes/lib/caes/invasive_aquatic_plant_program/pdf_reports/b1027.pdf
