Re: Paulownia, now cattails

We had a sometime-pond at the farm in California. It collected rain water in winter, then slowly dried up from late spring to late summer. Four things lived there--cattails, catfish, carp, and crawfish. When the pond reached mud-hole status in mid-August, the catfish, carp, and crawfish burrowed into the mud to estivate until the winter rains. The cattails died back around Labor Day--they didn't spread very much in the 10 years we lived there.

Fascinating! Do you call this a native or an alien when the American and
European types have been joined into one species? And it is spreading,
but not everywhere. Questions, Questions.

I found this history of cattails interesting:

I remember the small patch of cattails on the pond near our home when I was
a kid- filled with Red-winged Blackbirds and Muskrats. I don't remember
seeing them when we'd drive a few hours to my Grandparent's home in
Wisconsin. Now, they seem to be all over the place up north, though I don't
see them much here in the south.
