Cattails

Cattails grow near water and marshes. They are one of the most common plants that grow near marshes, wetlands and ponds. They grow very fast in the right conditions and can be from 3 to 10 feet tall. The fluffy “hot dog” looking part of the plant can be eaten. They have a slimy substance below, near and under the water that can be used medicinally, like aloe vera.
