The Dwarf Cattail is a smaller version of the common cattail and makes an excellent background plant. They are great for small ponds as well as tub and container gardening. Dwarf Cattails should be planted in one-gallon or larger containers.

The foliage is very narrow and grass-like in appearance and small, round, dark brown flower spikes add to its charm. May reach 12 to 36" in height. Grows with 1-6" of water over its pot. Spreads rapidly by runners. Zones 3-11.

Approximate Purchase Size: 8" to 10"
