Floating plants native to North America:
Ceratophyllum demersum, AKA 'hornwort'
Azolla AKA 'fairy moss' or 'water fern'
Utricularia, AKA 'bladderwort'
Lemna, AKA 'duckweed' (both giant and common)
Wolffia borealis, AKA 'northern watermeal'
Ricciocarpus natans, AKA 'purple fringed riccia'
Limnobium spongia, AKA 'frogbit'
I'm no plant expert, so that's definitely not all the species. Maybe some other people can help add to the list.

It's like having water hyacinth roots growing up from the ground, colored green. ^_^

One of my favorite floating plants, and looks very nice in a rimless open top tank.
Here's some floating in a newly setup work tank:
A month later, and it's a dense, fry friendly mat, sheltering flagfish grazing on duckweed:
Check the USDA site to make sure you aren't collecting an endangered plant in your state.

(Yes - invasive, but not this far north.)
I'll check out the other plants in this thread. Thanks.
