Typha latifolia variegata is the variegated cultivar of greater reed mace and is a godsend, since it is far less vigorous than the plain green species and the strong white and green variegation lasts all season. It does still have the sharp roots but isn’t going to take over your pond. It’s actually quite slow to multiply and is hence more expensive. The cleanly variegated stripy leaves are very architectural and don’t have that artificial look that blights some variegated plants. N.b. if you order plants later in the year you will get a stump, and will have to wait for new canes to form the following season – we can’t send an eight foot plant in a box for £5.90 postage!
