Cattail Millet is well adapted to marshes and areas of standing water that sustain water loving plants such as cattail, sedge, arrowhead, bulrush and native grasses. There are no trees in a Marsh. Sedge meadows, wet meadows, prairie pot holes and shallow wetlands are kinds of marshes where Cattail Millet will grow.
Cattail Millet is a tall grass having cattail like spikes; grown in Africa and
Asia for its grain and in the United States chiefly for
forage; sometimes used in making beer [syn: pearl millet,
bulrush millet, Pennisetum glaucum, Pennisetum Americanum]
Cattail provedes food and shelter for many animals.
If you have land that is too wet in spring and too wet to harvest in fall this is your plant.
