Plant ID

A friend of mine gave me this plant saying its good for aquariums. Does anyone know what it is?
I've had it in my m- guppy tank for a week or two and to me it looks like the roots have rotted.
I have a feeling that this isn't a fully aquatic plant. Any help would be great!
Thanks all!

It looks like Mexican oak leaf which is aquatic but it's kinda hard to tell from the pics.

Just weird then the roots have rotted. She called it a wisteria plant. Though it didn't look like any wisteria I've ever seen.

She may be right it could just be emersed growth and has to transition to submerged.

So that they don't mess with my tank, I've taken them out and have them in a bowl. I'll add some fert. And see if the perk up.
I've never had a plant rot at the roots though. :/
