Thi variegated Bulrush will not grow as tall as the species and is less invasive, but close-in the shap-pointed roots in a container with closed sides anyway. The long, green, grassy leaves with their white length-stripes are very decorative. During summer the at first green female flower‘cigars’ appear, colouring brown later-on, with a ‘tail’ of yellow male flowers on top. In autumn the leaves and stems die-off, while the roots will survive in the pond-soil. Perfectly winter-hardy. For a spot in preferably lots of sun and in wet, heavy pond-soil to 20 cm deep water (measured from pond-soil up).
