I bought this plant in spring for my small pond. There are no signs of any flowers yet which is disappointing. I see the notes on the plant database say 'time to maturity 5-10 years'. Will I have to wait that long for flowers?

Typha not flowering

Hi, Georgie,
No, you shouldn't have to wait that long for it to flower. However, since it hasn't flowered yet, and it is still new to your pond, I have a suspicion that it won't flower this year. Does the foliage look healthy? If so, it might just need this year to really establish itself and then be ready to flower next year. Let me know how the foliage looks - if it looks unhappy, that might explain no flowers. Would you be able to post a photo?

Hi Kathy

Thanks for your reply. As you can see from the photo the foliage is a healthy green and well over 60cm tall. Looks like I'll just have to be patient then.
