Tall, waterside plant with broad strap leaves and globular (male and female) flowers on sturdy branched stems.
I passed a local pond to check on damselflies, and remembered seeing Branched Bur-Reed here a few years ago. However the pond has been altered somewhat (this farmland is sensitively managed) but the Bur-Reed is no longer present . These are the shots I took in August 2010.
