    Disappointed in the Cattail

    The Cattail was skimpy and small. I didn't feel like I got my money's worth with this plant, either. I couldn't even tell it was a Cattail.

    Everything was neatly packed in box and was received earlier than expected. Planting instructions were not sent. I found them on line.
