Non-rooted floating Aquatic plants are true vascular plants whose entire body is floating on top of the surface of the water. These plants can range from small plants (around the size of a grain of sand) with green flowers that are barely visible to larger plants that produce larger colorful flowers. This plant group is distinguished from the others by having the entire plant floating on the surface of the water, without roots protruding into the soil. There are 5 main types of non-rooted floating aquatic plants in Kentucky.
