Aquatic Plants an Important Part of any Healthy Freshwater Ecosystem - More than 4,200 types of wild plant species grow in Florida including more than 1,400 invasive species, providing greater plant diversity than nearly any other state. Hundreds of these plant species blossom in Florida lakes and streams and along freshwater shorelines. Besides providing prime habitat, these plants also help keep local waters clean.
