The Pond Guy has a very good and quick weed ID service.....no obligation to buy any herbicides from them but they will tell you if it is invasive and if it is how to kill it. Send a decent picture off your smartphone and they will be back to you in 24 hours or less.

weedid@thepondguy.com

I have used it multiple times. Very helpful. BM61

Nothing but what you see. Thought it was cattail but never has the brown seed thingy at the ends. Stands about 3-4' out of the water

BM61,

I sent the e-mail to Pond Guy as you suggested. Their reply, "This weed looks just like a shoreline grass...." So, at least in their opinion, it's not cattails.

As it seems easily controlled by a pond safe glyphosate, I think I will keep a small area as another type of habitat when the water level goes back up.

Pat,

Must be at least similar to what you neighbor has so it will be interesting to see if it forms any kind of flower or seed head.

Bill, please do. I'm looking for something with similar density to kissimmee grass, and can do well in marginal water.

I'd be willing to bet that you will see cattail flowers next June or early July.....

Al, I think kissimmee grass is a type of bullrush, not a grass. I see different species referenced as kissimmee grass but most look like phragmites to me. Maybe you need to drive to Florida and take a shovel? wink

I think even if it is cattails, as the area is small, I will just remove seed heads and still allow an area to form by runners and just control its size with glyphosate. See a downside?

Scott, to be honest, if I thought that work for me, I'd make the drive to Florida n a heartbeat.

I'll be opening up 2017 with a pond almost completely void of vegetation. You've been here, and know that means tons of new cover, as fast, and cheap as possible. 3-3.5 acres worth seems about right.

The only downside is the attention and labor it will require.

Al, I have some plants still growing in my pond that were brought back here in 5 gal buckets from my buddies place near Miller Grove. That was probably 5-6 years ago.....
