Typha latifolia Variegata can have sharp rootstock. For root control, place basket inside a larger solid pot or in a clay based pond it can be allowed to raft through an area of water. Roots will absorb nutrients and pollutants hence all Typha latifolia species can be used in natural filtration projects like reed beds. Plant deep in the water to protect the crown of the Typha latifolia Variegata from frost and ice.

Plants arrived doing well, packaging was very good and they soon settled and are thriving all ready after only 10 days or so. Very pleased with service, will be using again and recommending to friends.

Plants arrived two weeks ago and are all, apart from the oxygenators, establishing well. The order was very well wrapped and the instructions very helpful.
