Seven species were tested for their ability to remove nitrogen and phosphorus from a nutrient recirculation system. Plants differed in their water consumption, biomass accumulation and nutrient assimilation. Canna x generalis 'Australia' showed the most promise for use in bioremediation of storm water systems.
