Cattail is amazing.
I have a friend and part of his email address is cattailfreak and he is heavily into bushcrafting and living of the land. Just recently when I learned more about foraging I came across cattail and learned about how versatile the plant is and I understood why he got that email address
It is similar to bamboo here in the more tropical parts of the world.
