I was given a couple of these plants but not sure of what they are. Once I know then I can look up if I can plant them in the bog or best in a couple of larger pots.

Hard to say - grasses of some kind obviously. And I'd say a variety that's going to grow large. But other than that I'm no help!

Looks like some sort of ornamental grass. I have some that has self seeded into the bog, it has handled the wet. I yanked it out gets too darn big.

I was wondering if I should plant it in the bog. Might be a better choice than the bull rushes.. Would like to know what zone they will survive in for the winter. Maybe I will leave them in the pots in the garage for the winter and plant them next year. Thought about putting them someplace else but then I would have to remember to water them.

Ha! My first thought that it's Johnsongrass... Spent many summers on a tractor trying to kill that stuff.

I hate the stuff, it is not killable. Easy to pull up but it comes right back.

Johsongrass stays shorter here, that stuff is too tall.
