Cattail is an aggressive native herbaceous perennial with upright sword-like green foliage and stiff central stalk with a packed cylindrical inflorescence with male flowers at the top and the female flowers at the end which blooms in summer. Male flowers quickly disperse after bloom leaving naked stalk tips, while female flowers mature to the familiar brown sausage-like fruiting tip.  Foliage turns yellow-brown in fall while fruiting spikes hold until winter. Grows best with full sun and wet soils.  Aggressive self-seeder.

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.

My order exceeded expectations last summer! Plus everything in pots and in the ground came back bigger and better early this spring.
