Graceful Cattail Shallow Water Plant – Pre-Order


The Graceful Cattail, known scientifically as Typha gracilis, is a slender and more refined version of the common cattail. It is perfect for smaller ponds and water features where space is premium.

As a favorite among water garden enthusiasts, the Graceful Cattail thrives in standing water, bringing life and movement to your pond with its gentle sway in the breeze. This plant is ideal for creating natural borders or adding structure to your water garden. It is a must-have for those looking to introduce wildlife-friendly and visually appealing elements to their outdoor oasis.
