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.

"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."
