Description

This water-milfoil from eastern Australia is also traded with the label Myriophyllum propinquum. In its submerged form it has light green, densely leaved stems with very finely pinnate leaves. This fast-growing stem plant needs good lighting and thrives well at temperatures between 20 and 28 °C. It is easily propagated by cuttings of the stem tip and side branches. In its terrestrial form, this milfoil species looks very different, with needle-like leaves on thick stems. Planted under water, it soon develops submerged shoots with the typical pinnate leaves.

Myriophyllum simulans, or filigree Myrio, grows in eastern Australia, mainly in the emersed form in the mud on the edges of various waterbodies or in marshes, where it forms dense lawn-like populations.

It was imported from Australia to Europe in 1983 by P.J. van der Vlugt. First it was named Myriophyllum propinquum. Since then, it has been sold as M. propinquum or "M. propinum" in trade.
In 1986, A.E. Orchard described Myriophyllum simulans as new species in its own right, and the aquarium plant imported from Australia was identified as such. True Myriophyllum propinquum is said to be native only in New Zealand.
M. simulans belongs to a complex of several difficult-to-discern Australian milfoils (e.g. M. jacobsii, M. crispatum, M. variifolium). (read more)
