    It is possible. I tried to find a direct source of information but couldn't. Instead, I found some indirect info.

    http://www.waterplantsforponds.com/s...ted-states.htm

    That's the website of a Canadian company that sells pond plants and supplies. Apparently you need a "phytosanitary certificate" which costs some amount of money. I'm not sure how you'd go about getting one, or if perhaps the standards are more relaxed when it's just one private citizen shipping plants to another, rather than a company doing business across the border.
