There is a specie of wild rice native to this area: zizania aquatica.  It is found in the freshwater, including tidal freshwater, areas of the Chesapeake Bay. 

Has anyone seen wild rice growing in this area?  

Turns out there is another specie: zizania palustris  that is found in Canada and the Great lakes and westward from the lakes.  Does anyone know how to tell the difference in the two species.  I found this article:https://www.jstor.org/stable/23297466?seq=1#page_thumbnails_tab_contents  but I cannot read it for some reason. 

Wild rice forms eatable seeds which apparently can also be popped like popcorn.  I have to try popping some.

Wild rice can help keep a pond clean by sucking up nutrients, which is why I am interested in wild rice.
