Here is South Eastern North Carolina, we are considered a zone 8 for growing
plants due to being surrounded by the sea which is warmed by the Gulf Stream.
The Cape Fear River drains a large part of the Green Swamp. Which is full of
cypress trees and other water tolerant trees and plants. Most of which shed
their leaves in the fall producing lots of tannic acid to color the streams. I
have seen small creeks where the water as black as very strong coffee. Instead
of being very soft as you would expect black water to be most of them are hard
water with a neutral pH.
