A large plant that can attain mature heights exceeding 10 ft. when growing unrestricted in its native climates, it is unlikely to exceed 4 ft. in our backyard environments. The seed heads are large, feathery and showy. Certainly beautiful when allowed to grow in a large pond setting or as a stand alone specimen in a patio container. This plant was used to paper and woven mats in ancient times.
Native to Africa and the tropics of Asia.
