Diminutive version of the common cattails we've grown in our ponds for years. This one gets no taller than two feet, and is not an aggressive spreader. It flowers in summer, then forms the typical brown fruiting spike that gives cattails its name.
||dwarf cattail; bullrush
||brown (late summer-fall)
||grow in shallow water or wet soil
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
