Slender Reed Mace or Thypha Laxmanni
A gorgeously striking tall reed mace, but slow growing so suitable for small to medium ponds. It forms a tight clump on the pond margins. Yellow flowers. The seedheads look like fussy cigars and appear between June & October. Great display plant for the Winter, cut back in the Spring. Will grow 3 -4 ft in height. Slow tight spread.
