Here on the Delmarva Penninsula, indigenous versicolors are seen growing
in a few inches of water. I have seen them in ponds which keep a fairly
constant water level all year long and also growing in tidal marshes
(but not salt marshes), where they may be in as much as 6" of water at a
normal high tide. I have not seen them in places where they do not get
lots of sun and constant moisture. Virginicas are more common in the
tidal marshes here and grow MUCH larger.
