I've seen L. americanum growing in two situations: smallish streams 
that probably have some flow all summer long, and low areas that 
flood in winter but dry out in summer. The latter, however, probably 
have moisture deep down and don't go bone dry like a rocky hillside 

Neither what you would call stagnant.
