This can be very variable depending on environmental conditions. The seeds are distributed by water, wind dispersal is not helped by the moist conditions causing fruits to clump together. The seeds need some freshwater in order to germinate although it can be found growing all over the marsh. Wildfowl eat the leaves and it's not shade tolerant.
