Umbrella plant?

Has anyone ever bought the umbrella plant from Petsmart? Because mine is labeled umbrella plant, but it looks like an anubias...
Is this what the umbrella plant is supposed to look like?

As far as I'm aware, an umbrella plant is not a true aquatic plant and will not last submerged under water (couple months at most).

Anubias, on the other hand, is a wonderful aquatic plant.

The plant picture is a umbrella palm, My mom planted one in our little pond in the backyard when I was in 6th grade and it's the toughest plant we have. Not aquatic though, and it get's big, ours is close to 5 feet tall
