This pond plant dies right back in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Depth of water: 2.5-10cm (1-4in)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July and August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    With its slender, grass-like leaves and distinctive spikes of short, squat, brown flowers, which can be cut for dried arrangements, this stylish aquatic plant looks great when planted around the margins of a pond. Unlike the common bulrush this miniature form is perfect for smaller water gardens, and could even be grown in a half barrel or water-tight container.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested clumps in spring.
