Cattail Plant - Cattail Typha Latifolia - Cattails are water-loving new plants
Cattail Plant meaning that their root systems grow submerged in water, but the bulk of the plant rises above the water's surface. They can reach up to 7 to 9 feet tall. They provide cover for wildlife, notably birds that nest and mate in the rushes. When grown along the edge of a pond or waterway, the plants soften the water's edge and provide a dramatic appearance. During the winter months, the tall plants' distinctive cigar-shaped brown heads hold snow.
Cattail Plant provide shelter for wildlife and even when the stalks turn a winter brown, the plants add landscape interest throughout the non-growing season. The plants are hardy to USDA zones 3 through 11 and can tolerate both high and low temperatures. Growers interested in permaculture find the plants extremely valuable, beyond simply their aesthetic appeal, because the plants are important pieces of a pond's entire ecosystem. Their roots help remove pollutants from water. The root systems also aid in the decomposition of organic materials that wash ashore.
Additionally cattail plants act as windbreaks and prevent shore erosion
To successfully grow cattails, they need to be planted in a moist, boggy environment with a water depth of no more than 1.5 feet. They spread via their rhizome root system, which requires a constant and consistent water source. Given the right conditions, they reproduce and divide rapidly. Cattail Plant is good news if your pond is undergoing severe erosion.
