The Dwarf Cattail Plant offers a sensible solution for pond keepers and water gardeners that love the look of the Common Cattail Plant but do not have the space to accommodate these wetland giants. In sharp contrast to "regular" Cattail Plants that can grow upwards to 10 ft tall, the Dwarf Cattail Plant (as its name implies) grows to a much more manageable size of 12 to 36" in height. These miniature Cattail Plants demonstrate a neat upright growth habit that is accentuated by its vertical strap-like foliage and tall floral stalks punctuated with adorable dumpling-like catkins. Locate the Dwarf Cattail Plant along the edges of your pond to soften rockwork and other hardscape with lovely greenery.
The Dwarf Cattail Plant is a heavy feeder and thrives in wet conditions planted immersed in water or at the water's edge under full sun conditions. To maintain a neat appearance or to contain excess growth, pot the Dwarf Cattail Plant in a 1 to 2-gallon planting container and set the planter in your pond so it is covered by up to 3 inches of water. The Dwarf Cattail is an excellent plant for small or large ponds and water gardens as well as tub and container water gardens. Zones 3-11.
