This is tough one- vines etc. Don’t care. Would like to cut back on some brushing. Concealment is everything! The blinds can be totally submerged underwater but typically just feet wet… Switch grass would not tolerate very well in my opinion, I have tried button brush, but planted during dry conditions I never took.

Couple clarifying questions—do you spray the area around the blind yearly? Do you disc around the blind yearly? Are you okay with waiting a few years before the brush really takes hold?

Bayberry. Normally grows right at edge of wet/ dry transition area. Can stand a bit of standing water but if your getting say 6" standing water constantly plant in old bushel baskets filled with soil. Roots will develop and eventually obtain true bottom but raised soil gives plants a good foothold so that flooding doesn,t overwhelm them. They grow and bush out pretty quick and once tall enough to hide blind trim to your desired height.
