This bog or water plant is native to North America, where it is considered a weed. It can easily reach a height of 3 feet(1mtr). It is a perennial with an extensive tuber-bearing creeping root system. It is a relic of pre history, of the time of the dinosours. I like the stiff evergreen straight banded stems that sometimes branch after damage. It is a trouble free plant that seems to grow easily in a pot of muddy water.
