Dwarf bulrush Typha minima brown - Marsh plant, Water plant

Typha minima
Small cigars
It's ideal for small ponds! The lesser bulrush (Typha minimua) is the smallest bulrush. The wetland plant is known for its long, brown, cigar-shaped flower spikes. The bulrush is just 5 cm long when it is planted. By the end of the summer, it will have grown to around 50 cm! We maintain a planting depth of 40 cm for the marsh plant. The water plant also does well under water. Plant the lesser bulrush in the spring. The flower blossoms in the summer.
We prune the plant slightly to shape it with a pruning shear. We remove old leaves and dirt. To encourage good growth, we add minerals to the pond water and ensure that the water's hardness level (pH value and calcium to magnesium ratio) is maintained. Put the plant in full sun or partial shade.
Unique pond edges!

The aquatic plant, reedmace, is best used in a pond basket. Line the basket with a piece of jute and fill the pond with special pond medium. Plant the lesser reedmace in the basket and fill with soil. Cover everything with the remaining jute and sprinkle with a layer of gravel. Place the basket about 40 cm deep in the pond. If your pond is too deep, you could stand the basket on a pile of bricks. This plant can also thrive out of the water, in marshy soil. Full sun or part shade.

Combining reedmace with other aquatics

Reedmace is an elegant narrow-leafed aquatic that will give your pond a very natural look. It combines perfectly with the flowering rush (Butomus Umbellatus) and yellow iris (Pseudacorus) along the edge of a natural pond. These riparian plants will definitely attract all sorts of wildlife.


Reedmace (typha angustifolia) is an easily grown pond plant that requires minimal maintenance. Cut off its dead leaves in autumn and remove them from the pond. If the rhizome grows too large, you should take this dwarf reedmace out of the pond in May, divide the clump into smaller pieces and plant only one or two of the best bits back in the pond.


The variety of reedmace's flowers are great for drying and are therefore very popular for dried flower arrangements. The flower heads are more ball shaped than the sigars of larger varieties. Its long, narrow leaves resemble reeds, only shorter.
This is the smallest type of reedmade so is great in small ponds and tubs on the patio/decking.
Typha (reedmace) belongs to the Typhaceae family and is suitable for shallow water up to 40 cm.
