> Hi claire--
I've never seen a cream colored pseudacorus; I'd love to find some
somewhere. Also, you mention covering the cattails. The cattails that
appeared in my pond were very quickly taking over. I hired a kid and we
cut them as close under the water as we could to control the spread. It
seemed to work last year -- I guess I'll have to do the same this year.
But don't your cattails invade heavily -- in my experience they aren't
happ side by side with anything and were threatening my pseudacors and
sibs. What is hemerocallis fulva? I have a large sunny bank with lousy
soil. Will this help?
