In the first pic, it looks like maybe an EASTERN BACCHARIS is there too.

Third pic,.....is that a chinese tallow also?

Salt grass is prolly in the background in all three pics:D:

Don't think salt grass and cattails like the same water... don't know if Chinese Tallow trees grow in Texas... they are not edible but a varnishing oil can be squeezed from their "pop corn" fruit.

It's hard to tell what that broadleaf is, but an bindweed of some kind is possible.

Baccharis....interesting... I never knew the latin name....groundsel is how I know it... not edible.

This is brackish water - a mix of salt and fresh water.

Yes, Tallow do grow in Texas.

Chinese tallows have taken over the entire upper and middle gulf coast here in Texas. It is our most prevelant invasive species.

I'm guessing that is a brackish bay in the background, from the location that Kev gave,....near Bridge City. Cattails grow close to the coast here, as long as the water is not salty.
