I saw a little creek on the side of High Way 84 in Livermore, and stopped to check for any aquatic plants. These are what I found.
Plant 1:

Plant 2:

Plant 3:

Plant 4:

Plant 5: (I'm hoping it's Lobelia cardinalis)

Most of these plants were growing emersed with roots/bottoms in the water.

Can someone also take a guess at the left most middle plant in that picture?

Plant 3 looks like some kind of hygrophilia.

No clue on the rest.

The plant bunch above pic #5 is Watercress. Edible, but not a true water plant.
