I have been sold these plants as water violet by 2 different providers: I suspect 1 of them is parrot feather .... i don't think they can both be water violet. can anyone help tell me which i should kill off as i am trying to keep native species only in my pond! 1 picture of each plant and 1 with the 2 together.

You could report the seller of the invasive one to trading standards. You should be able to get a refund if they have any sense.

In the right hand photo on the top row the plant under the floating sticks looks like a Parrot’s feather. The other plants are water-violets, which by comparison have longer, narrower and less uniform leaflets.
