Bulrush

The hardy plant zone for the Green Bulrush is 3-9. It is a perennial that produces fibrous roots that make it great for land cover. It is native to North America and is part of the grass family. Predominantly, it is found in Newfoundland, Manitoba, and the northeast and mid-west regions of the United States. It is an aggressive grower that is hard to contain in a manicured lawn environment. It is durable and is often used in ground restoration projects such as wetlands and soggy areas that have erosion problems.

Bulrush Is A Stunning Green

The culm of the plant flourish to produce an abundant number of umbels at the end of its long blades. These culms are the above ground stem that resembles a stalk usually an olive-green color. The umbels become fertile in summer and top the plant in a brownish gold wheat color cluster. The clusters are composed of small spikelets. The spikelets mature during the autumn season and turn a dark chocolate brown which then appear to look like starry clusters. The many displayed seeds last to the end of the fruiting season which runs July through August.

Bulrush Can Get Huge

At maturity, the plant can grow to an average of 3 to 5 feet. Also, they can have a 2 to 4-foot spread. It prefers a cooler crisper air to grow in usually found in the spring and fall seasons. After harvest, the regrowth rate is slow. It has a long lifespan but has a low tolerance of drought conditions. It adapts well to fine and medium textured soils and requires a pH of 4.0 to 8.0. It grows and develops well in wet moist soil types. It thrives in wetland areas, marshes, bogs, swamp lands, and flood plains. It grows along the sides of creek beds and rivers. It is a durable plant but does not grow well in shade. The Green Bulrush has been valuable in restoration projects and erosion control.
