Cold Water Plants

Well since I'm thinking about a native tank, I'm doing some research on some cold water plants I can use. So far this is the list of cold water plants, now I'm slowly going through to see what each needs (I'm sure there are more cold water plants not in this list, so if you know of any let me know!). Before I choose my plants I'm going to first go out and test the water from where the native species will be coming from to see what parameters I need to replicate. Here's the list, any pointers on these plants greatly appreciated!
Bacopa monnieria
Ceratophyllum demersum
Egeria densa
Eleocharis acicularis
Elodea canadensis
Fontinalis antipyretica
Hydrilla verticillata
Lagarosiphon madagasericuse
Lemna minor
Ludwegia repens
Myriophyllum aquaticum
Potamogeton crispus
Sagittaria graminea
Vallisneria gigantea
Vesicularia dubyana

Depending on the place where I get the fish (going to test the temp) probaby 68-72 F, but maybe a tad warmer.

that list seems okay for 72 (or a bit warmer)

Eleocharis, egeria, and Lysimachia nummularia ‘Aurea’ will survive much colder (around 60)
