Thanks for all the info on cat tails. I really think now that the
problem is that they are too young, as they barely had stems much more
than 6" long and very small pieces of root system intact when I
planted them, so its probably just a matter of waiting some more.
Not too concerned about them taking over, as my pond may be small but
the banks drop very quickly and deep. On average its 4 to 5 feet right
off the bank drops, except for the inlet and outlet sections, and
after that drop it eventually gets to 20+ feet, pretty quick and its
only about 3/4 acre in size.
Like I said i want it for covering up the shallow inlet area and
outlet and give a somewhat natural wild look in these areas, as well
as provide some cover for critters and fish etc.
Thanks for all the replies
