Typha Minima is an aquatic marginal perennial plant which is ideal for ornamental ponds. It forms narrow, grass-like mat leaves in a beige colour and has little bull heads atop its long stems in summer. The dried flower spikes can make a distinctive floral arrangement and are perfect for bouquets. Typha Minima is a semi-evergreen, which means that the foliage of the plant persists and remains green throughout mild winters.
Aquatic and marginal plants should be placed in pond plant baskets filled with aquatic soil (sold separately) and topped with a thin layer of gravel to help prevent the soil from washing away. This plant is suitable for zones 2 & 3 of a pond.
Caring and Maintenance
This is a very low maintenance plant which requires a well moisturised environment. Propagate by division in spring. To limit self-seeding, the stems may be cut after flowering. All wandering clumps can be trimmed to control plant growth.
"But slightly complicated in the delivery as i thought it would turn up at the same time as everything else i ordered but instead it arrived 4 days later. Making me think there was a problem with the order."
