Batis maritima (Pickleweed) Pickleweed is an invasive or introduced plant in Hawaii. It has succulent, brilliant green leaves and is common in salt marshes and tidal shorelines. It grows slowly in soils with high salt concentrations and areas with seawater overwash where it suffers little competition from other plants. The species manages salts by sequestering them in cell vacuoles and eventually shedding the leaves. symbol,vector,illustration,flowering,plant,invasive,introduced,turtleweed,saltwort,beachwort,Angiosperms,Eudicots,Rosids,Brassicales,Bataceae,SBW

Pickeral rush (Pontederia cordata) occupies wetland shoreline. This emergent aquatic, with its leaves and flowers above water and portions of the stem under water, is found typically in shallow, quiet water. The seeds can be eaten like nuts and the young leaf-stalks cooked as greens. Deer also feed on these plants. The common name suggests that this plant, as well as the fish known as pickerel, occupy the same habitat. plant,marsh,wetland,native,bog,swamp,Maryland
