Default Plant/Weed Identification

There are 2 photos below which may look combined because they were next to each other.
The first photo is a plant located in the back of a lake which gets flooded a good bit. I believe the plant is able to withstand some flooding but I'm not sure the length of time it can last in standing water. The flowers are white with maybe little shade of pink.

the second photo has what I believe is a type of sedge plant; not sure if that is correct or which type it is.

any info is always appreciated, thanks

thank you for the info on the giant sedge.

hoping the first one plant has some kind of benefit to ducks or deer. Looks like something has been bedding in it.

First pic is catnip I believe flowers and leaves look right, check the stems to see if they are square if yes- its catnip.

It looks similar to both, but I don't believe it is either one. Of the two I believe it looks closer to the Germander, but the leaves of the germander look to only come directly off the stem. The plant above has stems with 5 leaves coming off the leader stem...

after hours of Google image searching I still haven't found anything that matches up well. I will take more photos this weekend that may help.
Another description for time being: These grow to 4-5 feet

Marsh elder (many incorrectly call it sumpweed) and nutsedge, both are indicative of poorly-drained, heavy soils that hold a lot of water (commonly found in bottomlands).
