That is about what I've seen around here, too, Jim. There are areas where
the ditches are full of water in spring and late fall and mud the rest of
the time. That is where I usually see the 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.
