Hollow, segmented, tubular stems grow to 4′ tall and grow in dry soils to wet, marginal pond conditions. An ancient native plant, limestone fossils are easy to find in local rock. Makes a great Japanese style garden subject, but spreads rampantly. Plant in contained areas, or in places where its spread won’t overcome other plantings. Excellent greenery in cut flower arrangements. Super-cool container specimen plant all by itself. NATIVE TO NORTH AMERICA.
