Answer #1 · Maple Tree's Answer · HI Marilyn-The University Of Wisconsin Arboretum has a site that gives a great list of native plants of Wisconsin. They give lists of trees, shrubs, vines, ground covers and grasses. They also note plants for dry, wet, and woodland areas. You can copy and past the plant names on the internet to find pictures and the characteristics of these plants. Below I have noted the link to this site. Just click on this link to go directly to the site.

I don't believe I have seen or know of a Crimson Brandy Daisy, but the Cherry Brandy Daisy is considered a biennial (half hardy annual). Although a different species than the Black-Eyed Susan their Characteristics other than color are somewhat similar. I noted the link to the Cherry Brandy plant file below. You can go directly to this plant file by clicking on the link and see a picture and its characteristics.

Answer #2 · Gardenality.com's Answer · I found this page that provides a listing specifically for native wetland plants of Wisconsin.

As for which one's on the list are non-invasive in Wisconsin, I'm not sure. Most of my experience is in the Southeast, primarily in the state of Georgia. A plant that is invasive here may not be invasive in Wisconsin. I'd choose a good number of plants from the list and then research these to see if they are invasive or not. Might take a little time to do the research but it'll be well worth it.
