looking for a list of native plants

i currently live in north carolina, though that will change by the end of the year...

lately, i have been shifting to native tanks. i already have a 55 gallon stocked with redbelly dace, redlip shiners, bluehead chubs, and crescent shiners. i have just recently started collecting native plants in my area, and i have run across one that i cannot ID. does anyone know of a list of native aquatic plants, or perhaps a field guide that i could use?

the plant in question was found in the eno river and the nuese river, and is always attached to either rocks or logs. ill try to post some pictures soon.

I did most of my research on my state DNR website.
I can't find my bookmark but there is also something posted on the Dept of Interior website that lists invasive species, most of them listed are natives that invaded another area/state.


I just got off another double shift so I apologize in advance if everything I just typed reads like ewok.
