The Narrowleaf Cattail is not native to the U.S., although it is to Canada.  The Broadleaf is our native cattail.  However, the Narrowleaf has a tendency to be invasive wherever it’s found in Indiana.

The Narrowleaf Cattail has the male and female parts of the plant separated with a gap.  The male flowers are located above the female flowers.
