Typha latifolia

Typha latifolia
Typha latifolia
Waits until mid-winter to disperse its fluffy seeds

Common name cattail
Family typhaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z3)
Flowers brown (summer)
Size 5-10'
Light sun
Cultural notes pond marginal

The exclamation point in our pond - strong upright growth with brown cigar flowers. Needs a heavy, broad pot to keep from toppling over in high winds.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
