Product information "Eriophorum angustifolium"

The narrow-leaved cotton grass is a plant for water’s edge, which is located in nature in our bogs. It is suitable for use in shallow water zones of ponds or as a uniformly moist bog plant. Due to the runners it develops, it can close small areas relatively quickly. It has edged stalks that are shaped like gutters and belongs to the Cyperaceae family. This perennial should be planted at a depth of about 10 cm. Starting in August, the upright stalks appear, which then produce the woolly-looking mass of cotton during the ripening of the seeds. Cottongrass prefers sunny locations with boggy, permanently moist to wet, acidic soils. It also finds use in shallow water, at water’s edge and in marshy areas of ponds.
