Cattail Plant 

The Cattail Plant is often seen growing near a source of water, such as along the bank of a river or a stream. When you view the plant, it looks like there is a long brown tail on the top that could belong to a cat. The stem is often dark green, lighter in color if the plant is in its earlier stages of maturity. These plants are often used for landscaping areas located along edges of water as they grow well with similar plants and aquatic plants. Sometimes, they can take root and thrive in shallow water. 

 

 When the Cattail Plant has reached adulthood, it can sometimes be 10 feet tall. The plant enjoys being in the full light of the sun but can also grow in partial light if there are taller plants or trees in the area. Strong stems provide support for the tail at the top of the plant and can often stand up to above-average amounts of rain. Leaves on the plant are elongated and flat while the tails are long and cylindrical. Upon closer inspection, there are a few small spikes that can be seen on the ends of the tails. These spikes tend to stick to animals that get close to the plant and are then deposited on the ground so that the plant can reproduce.
