I just saw water hyacinth at Star Garden in Moiliili. Wally's a few blocks away has various water plants.

The lotus root that you buy that has a sprout can grow also water chestnuts .
Try Asian food markets .

They sometimes sells those at Pets N' Plants in Waimalu Shopping Center. Look for other aquarium pet stores to see if the have it.

I like water lily. They can be purchased at Home Depot and many garden stores. I also raise a small (about 3 inch diameter white) in two ceramic pots that average three flowers in bloom all year long. I really like them.

The lotus plant I saw at Oahu Urban Garden Center was pretty.

You guys are so lucky you have a water garden! You could stock it with lotus, and have those beautiful flowers. Home Depot at Pearl City is selling it.
