Strong growing grass with broad glossy leaves that turn brown in autumn and purple or violet flowers. This plant is frequently used in sewage treatment beds and it is still used for thatching.
9cm marginal plants require potting into a larger mesh basket. Place in a pond no deeper than 1/3 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish. 1ltr marginal plants do not require repotting, place in pond no deeper than 1/2 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish, plants over 60cm height growth will benefit from repotting into a larger mesh basket or should be planted in gravel to prevent them from falling over. 3ltr and 5ltr plants do not require repotting, as they are larger more established plants they can be placed up to the maximum recommended depth. There is no need to remove the mesh basket.
Trim just above the water surface in Autumn or enjoy the seed heads all winter and trim just before the new growth in spring.
