[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Rushes, reeds and sedges (Phragmites, Typha, Glyceria, Carex, Phalaris, Juncus and Scirpus) are perennial plants which grow in or near static or flowing water and on marshy ground. When growing in water, they are usually found in less than 1 m depth. Most species have rhizomes from which aerial shoots emerge in the spring, growing to a height of 3m (depending on the species) and dying back in the autumn. Although some species reproduce by seed, the main method of spread is by vegetative growth from rhizomes. Once plants are established in shallow water, they trap silt around the roots and shoots, impeding or diverting water flow, and allowing further spread of the plants into water previously too deep to sustain them.

The photo I took in Japanese Park in Mississaga.The pond is partially frozen.
