Habitat Overview Thickets of willows, alders, buttonbushes, mallows and other shrubs growing in shrub swamps or along the shorelines of ponds, lakes, rivers, and streams. Shrubs in this habitat are tolerant of frequent flooding or can grow in at least shallow impoundments. Most require at least partial sun, as is usually available in the edge habitats they occupy.
