Eriocaulon parkeri is a hardier variety of pipewort that is a good candidate for first-time keepers. It will endure a wider variety of water conditions and less specific on nutrients than its cousins.
This small aquatic perennial herb produces narrow, linear, grasslike leaves up to about 9 centimeters long and flowering stems. It is monoecious, with male and female flowers on the same plant. Flowering occurs in July through September.
This plant is often found in coastal habitats like mudflats, estuaries, and marshes, but in freshwater or slightly brackish water. It may be submerged at times and grows in mud or cobbly gravel or sand. The substrate is often subject to scouring from water action, including tides and floods.
