Phalaris arundinacea whole Phalaris arundinacea close

This is one of our commonest waterside grasses. It grows to over 2m and will screen the river, lake or canal completely from view. The wide bladed grass with feather flowering panicles are typical.

Apart from a few places in the high montains of Scotland P. aruninacea is found throughout the British Isles.
