how do you tell if it's a hybrid

pay close attention to the leaf width, heighth, color and density, as well as the flower separation. Narrow-leaved cattail is about 1/2 inch wide, quite tall, dark green and grows very densely with about 4 inches of flower separation. Our native is about 1 inch wide, blue-green in color, relatively short, and typically grows much less densely, with no separation in flowers. The hybrids are intermediate.
