Cattail

Typha

Description:

You can easily recognize a cattail stand: White, dense, furry, cigar-shaped overwintered seed heads stand atop very long, stout stalks, even as the young shoots first emerge in early spring.

Habitat:

Muddy, shallow pond.

Notes:

The cattail is one of the most important and common wild foods, with a variety of uses at different times of the year. Whatever you call it, a stand of cattails is as close as you wíll get to finding a wild supermarket.
