The rhizomes work as storage organs and provide energy to the plant during drought. Bulrush (Typha) is a genus of about 60 monocotyledonous flowering plants in Typhaceae. They are distributed in wetlands throughout the world's temperate, subtropical, and tropical parts. The genus includes the bulrush, a common plant found in wetland areas.


It can grow to 1–3 m tall, with stout rhizomes giving rise to dense stands of erect stems. Leaf-sheaths at the base are spongy and brownish; they collapse when the leaves die. The leaf blades are flat, narrow, and strap-like, 5–30 cm long, 0.5–1 mm wide; they are green to dark green and sometimes have small marginal teeth or edges with short hairs. The panicle is open, 10–60 cm long, with many spikelets. The grass has no accurate leaf anatomy. Instead, it has a photosynthetic outer skin (or epidermis) called the periderm (or epicuticle).


The grass resembles bulrushes of the genus Scirpus but differs from them by its single-flowered spikelets. Bulrushes are distinguished from other genera of Typhaceae by their falcate. It has tall stems that are jointed at the base and have spikes of flowers. These flowers form a seed-like fruit that looks like a small brown nut.


It is the grass that grows in wet places. It is found in marshy areas and rarely grows over knee-high. The stems are hollow, and the flowers resemble grass. Bulrushes grow in large patches, and their leaves can be used for making mats and baskets.


This plant has adapted to conditions on land, from snow-covered Polar Regions to deserts, from acidic peat bogs to rainforests and marine shores. Purchase Bulrush because humans use them for many purposes, including livestock fodder, thatch, basket weaving material, and food.
