The water caltrop, water chestnut, buffalo nut, is a floating annual aquatic plant, growing in slow-moving water up to 5 meters deep, native to warm temperate parts of Eurasia and Africa. It bears ornately shaped fruits, which resemble the head of a bull, each fruit containing a single very large starchy seed.
Salvinia natans (commonly known as floating fern or commercially, Water Butterfly Wings) is an annual floating aquatic fern, which can appear superficially similar to moss. It is found throughout the world where there is plentiful standing fresh water, sunlight, and humid air.
Quercus rubra, commonly called northern red oak or champion oak is an oak in the red oak group. In lots of forests, this deciduous tree grows straight and tall, to 28 m, exceptionally to 43 m tall, with a trunk of up to 50–100 cm in diameter. Open-grown trees do not get so tall, but can develop a stouter trunk, up to 2 m in diameter. It has stout branches growing at right angles to the stem, forming a narrow round-topped head. It grows rapidly and is tolerant of many soils and varied situations, although it prefers the glacial drift and well-drained borders of streams.
