Except that the leaves of Cabomba look nothing at all like a Myriophyllum.
The former have palmately dissected leaves while the latter have pinnately
Also Cabomba have 3 sepals and 3 petals not 5 petals like you said.
Hottonia palustris would be a much better match for the inadequate
description you gave.

I finaly found it last night. Ever heard of Cabomba carolinia? It's in the
watershield family but has a highly reduced "shield" that looks almost like
the bracts of the flower. The majotity of the plant in submersed and
resembles a milfoil. It's quite beautiful!
