Green Bulrush - 25 Plants $79.99 Description

Green Bulrush usually requires moist and damp areas for growth

Green bulrush is also known as Scirpus atrovirens. Sometimes it is also called dark green bulsedge, Black Bulrush, or green bulrush. It belongs to the family of Cyperaceae. Plants belonging to this family have a solid triangular stem and spirally arranged leaves. 

Green bulrush is a prevalent species of shores, marshes, swales, ditches, and often wet places throughout most of the state. This plant usually requires moist and damp areas for growth. Green bulrush is the most common and easily distinguished by the consistently numerous and conspicuous cross partitions on all health.

Their floral are dark in color at the time of maturity with an average height of 4mm in length, 3-parted styles, 5 or 6 Bristles more or it may be less, and the bulblets that sprout late in the season that may grow or may not grow.

The plant is unbranched and more or less erect. The culm size is 4mm, and its color is green. The culm has eight or more leaves at every side, and they have rough-textured along with their margins. Both the Branchlets and the branches are green in color. The base of each umbellet has one or more slender leaf bractlets.

These are much smaller than the leafy bract at the bottom of the compound umbel. The spikelets are 3-6mm in length, and they are oval, and it consists of several series of overlapping florets. The spikelets are yellow at the blooming season, but they turn from brownish to black at the end.

This plant is cultivated in full to partial sun and moist to wet conditions. Green bulrush is adapted to various soil types, including excessive organic material, sand, gravel, or clay. In case if the soil gets dried out, the leaves become yellowish-green.
