Typha lugdunensis (Typha gracilis) is a compact variety of reed mace. It needs to be trimmed back in Autumn but will not be as invasive as the rootstock of the other more vigorous Typha species. It can, however, have pointed rootstock so placing the basket in a solid container is a good idea. Roots will absorb nutrients and pollutants hence this Typha species can be used in natural filtration projects like reed beds.
