Common Cattail

Common Cattails are a familiar sight along the shore of any marsh, pond, lake, or river. They can even be found in ditches.
Cattails are tall, stiff plants, growing almost ten feet tall. The leaves look like giant blades of grass, about one inch wide. The flower has two parts; a brown cylinder (the female part), and a yellow spike (the male part).
Cattails are usually found in a dense stand (many together).
