Description

Bur Reed Grass For Sale Affordable, Grower Direct Prices Tennessee Wholesale Nursery

Bur-Reed Grass as it is more commonly known, is a cousin of the cat-tail, widely found in similarly wet environments. The different variants of these perennial grasses can be found across the globe, in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Bur Reed Grass is considered an aquatic plant, located in still or slow-moving marshes, streams, and ponds, from temperate to arctic zones. At maturity, Bur Reed Grass can reach heights nearing 12 feet, creating a refuge for wildlife, as well as a source of nourishment. The stem of the Bur Reed floats or emerges from its damp surroundings, branching out into arched leaves that resemble straps. The flowers of the Bur-Reed Grass are sphere-like and can be both male or female. It is the mace-like appearance of the prickly flowers, in fact, that gives the Bur Reed Grass its distinctive name. The seeds of the Bur Reed Grass are known to collect in large deposits, or banks, in the soil, allowing the hardy plant to survive through dry weather patterns. The seeds are also a vital source of food for wildlife, particularly waterfowl. Bur Reed Grasses have become a useful tool in landscaping, most often used for water purification purposes, providing a scenic, wetland vista.
