    Water Hyacinth (Pontederia crassipes) is a very invasive aquatic plant found in tropical climates.  Luckily it is extremely useful and is woven into basket ware, shoes, furniture etc. Bunnies love the taste and it is safe to chew.

    It shouldn't be confused with the very spring common UK plant Hyacinthus which is a is a small genus of bulbous, spring-blooming perennial in the family Asparagaceae.  These are poisonous to consume.
