Also known as Common reed.

Planting depth 0-90cm (36in) of water above soil level.
Beware the strong, rhizomatous, roots can grow through pond liner!
We would recommend a planting basket of at least 11cm across for one plant or, for more impact, plant several of the same variety in a larger basket.

We ship all marginal water plants bare root, this means that we wash the soil off before packing plants. During the summer months we may need to trim some of the foliage back for shipping.
