No, "wild rice" isn't a real rice. Related, distantly but still not really
rice (Oryza sativa and oryza glaberrima are the domesticated rices).
Zizania is the genus for wild rice and the three native to the U.S. are z.
palustris (Great Lakes), z. aquatica (St. Lawrence River) and z. texana
(Texas but just about extinct).
