Grasses, reeds and rushes...oh my!

A "Simply" Extra
The thing I know best about grasses, reeds and rushes is how little I do know.  I have so much to learn!

Cattails, I can identify.  The ones growing in the shallow ends of our lake are just now beginning to develop white fluff, seeds that will soon blow across the surface of the water.

But what are some of the other plants growing along the shoreline?  Many, like the cattails above have developed seeds.  I've yet to identify the plants pictures below but on each, seed heads add a bit of color and showiness to an otherwise easy-to-overlook plant.
