Description :

Common cotton grass, cottonsedge, bog cotton

Eriophorum angustifolium belongs to the Cyperaceae family and is native to damp regions in northern Europe, the Arctic and Russia. In summer it produces white, downy, feathery inflorescences. Its pointy, linear leaves are like reeds.

Its cotton-like flowers are an attractive addition to the garden. As its name suggests, bog cotton likes to be planted in peaty soil in a tub or pond in water to a maximum depth of 5cm.

It develops freely through rhizomes and is therefore a good plant for a pond or riverside or to colonize damp areas in the garden (wet meadows, ditches, etc.).
