Bulrush

Scirpus spp.

Also known as: Scirpus. 

Also known as: Scirpus. 

Bulrushes grow in shallow water and moist soils, so shorelines of ponds provide a great habitat for these plants. Some may reach 8 - 10 feet in height. Some bulrush species have three sided stems like sedge. Leaves grow on the lower stems and irregular seed clusters are densely packed located near stem tips.
