With its slender, grass-like leaves and distinctive spikes of short, squat, brown flowers, which can be cut for dried arrangements, this stylish aquatic plant looks great when planted around the margins of a pond. Unlike the common bulrush this miniature form is perfect for smaller water gardens, and could even be grown in a half barrel or water-tight container.
- Garden care: Lift and divide congested clumps in spring.
