The common cattail is an aggressive growing aquatic herb that can range in height from 3 to 10 feet. The leaves are green, long, slender, and grow perpendicularly to the water with a brown, oblong-shaped flowering head. It is a rapid-growing plant that thrives best in full sun or partial shade with damp soil and some standing water. When growing cattails, keep them contained, or they will spread rapidly.

The Bull Tongue regularly presents a stem of beautiful clusters of white-to-slightly pink 3-petal flowers 1-5 inches in diameter.

The Deer Berry Bush feeds a variety of wildlife, including whitetail deer. Twisted contorted trunks are covered in thin reddish-brown bark, which peels and shreds. Deciduous egg-shaped leaves, one to three inches in length, are white underneath and turn red and orange during the fall. Bell-shaped flowers with clusters of yellow stamens extend beyond white petals. Pale berries appear in late spring and early summer, ranging from bluish to purple, are sweet and spicy in taste.
