Yesterday I bought a number of plants for my pond and bog. There is one I selected because I like the foliage but there was no tag in the pot and I forgot to ask when I paid what it is. I called them today and they said it sounds like “Bayer Tail”?? Obviously I heard it wrong on the phone as I cannot find such a plant.

I really like it! Is it bog or do you submerge?

looks like parrot's feather to me
Mine all died last year even with a mild winter
I hear you can bring some inside to overwinter

This is definitely Mare’s Tail and it best to be in water so the pond in this case. I read 4” under but someone stated they do better about 12” down.

I like to stick it between rocks around the edge of the pond with the ends in The water. I also have it stuck between the rocks of my waterfall where they are within the water flow.
Mare's Tail, Parrot's Feather. They seem to look the same. What's the difference between the two plants? Are they the same?

@poconojoe, not sure the difference as when I first saw it I thought Parrot’s Feather like @qclabrat but after further research and now understanding what the store called it, I know it’s Mare’s Tail but that is all.

I have it and it is Mare's tail. I was lucky and found it in a ditch up north of us while camping. I have it in a big pot of kitty litter. That's parrots feather to the right and it's also in a big pot of kitty litter.
