Detail
T. laxmannii occurs from Europe through Siberia, the Caucasus, the Middle East, Himalayas in Pakistan, Kazakhstan and Mongolia to the Russian Far East, China and Japan. In Europe, it is apparently native to the eastern Balkans and east into European Russia, the Ukraine and the Crimean Peninsula but introduced to many other countries in Central Europe. T. laxmannii is classed as Critically Endangered in Croatia. Otherwise it appears to be widespread with stable populations, although often scarce throughout its native range in Europe. It appears to be frequently introduced from cultivation. T. laxmannii typically occurs in shallow water in the margins of pools and ponds, apparently particularly in water bodies remaining from abandoned sand or gravel extraction. It has also been reported from artificial ponds, inland inundations, rice fields, and channels. Typha laxmannii is not as tall as many of the other species in the genus, rarely more than 130 cm high. A noticeable space separates the staminate (male) flowers from the pistillate (female) ones.
