Re: Paulownia now cattails

Kinda like freshwater mangroves, eh.

Not sure anyone addressed the cattails! Mother nature uses them to level
out the earth? When they establish they catch and drop all debris possible
to fill in the waters and continue to do so while they spread to continue
their mission. Lovely for dry dry arrangements - bad for ponds!

Around here they take over- I mean to the point where
they have dried up small lakes. They totally engulf
the lake, the next year or so there is no room for
water anymore and it becomes a swamp- then before you
know it, someone is building a new subdivision on the
new found land... sigh.

In a pond like my mothers, it is not a natural pond-
so the roots will poke thru the liner and then we will
really have a mess on our hands...
