Well.....I need help IDing these.....thanks for any help....Zone 6b in Kentucky. These are growing on the edge of the pond.

size 13 boot for scale reference









I think this last one may be a cat tail shoot. I planted a few seeds from a cat tail head because there is NOTHING growing in or around this pond. THe previous owners cut grass all the way up to the edge. Its a small pond, and I know cat tails can be competitive, so if it takes off too much I'll get in there and dig it up.

pic #1 & 2 Maybe a wild mustard? Sometimes purple leaves are a result of something in the soil, not a trait of the plant itself.

Pic #3 looks like daisy fleabane. If so, the stalk will get taller as it flowers. In my climate, depending on how dry or wet their roots are, they grow from 1 to 3 feet tall. This basal rosette in the pic has begun to 'stand up' while your pic has them still hugging the ground. Mine usually have white rays, sometimes with a touch of pink.

Wow, the one with the purple leaves sure does look like the toxic Senecio glabellus in your link! Hmmmmm.....maybe I'll wait to see if it has a yellow blossom then pull it out if it does. Thanks for the information
