I found a freshwater sumberged plant in a stream in the lower Chesapeake
Bay watershed yesterday.  It resembles plants of the genus Myriophyllum
in many ways but does not fit any in my keys.  It has a reddish stem,
brownish leaves, opposite feathery brownish leaves, and emergent
violet/white flowers with 5 petals and 6 stamens.  Any ideas???
