Typha laxmannii

Typha laxmannii, common name graceful cattail,[3] is a wetland plant species widespread across Europe and Asia.[4][5] Typha laxmannii is not as tall as many of the other species in the genus, rarely more than 130 cm high. A noticeable space separates the staminate (male) flowers from the pistillate (female) ones.[4]
