I have seen it called a couple of different things. This is one of the many non-aquatic plants that I have personally had rot in my aquarium believing I was doing something wrong.

Typically because they don't realize what they are doing. It seems to be fairly common practice to sell bog plants as if they were meant to be complete submerged...
