Plant details

This is an attractive, clump-forming evergreen, reed-like plant with tubular, pointed, upright green leaves. The stems bear dark coloured joints at regular intervals, giving plants the appearance rather like an aquatic bamboo. Plant in baskets of aquatic compost and use a marginal plant. After a few years remove from the pond and divide to prevent plants getting too large and overcrowded.
