 Green Bulrush

The Green Bulrush, also known as the Scirpus Atrovirens, is widespread throughout North America and is found in most of the United States as well as eastern Canada. This native marsh species is a perennial that thrives in full-sun with wet to semi-wet conditions. Once established, this plant can tolerate part-shade in warmer months. The hardy Green Bulrush is highly adaptive and can flourish in rich acidic to slightly alkaline soils and prefers standing water up to one inch. The USDA classifies this plant as hardy for zones three through nine. The fibrous roots form clumps even in highly saturated soils making this plant ideal for use to stabilize the ground and for restoration projects.

Green Bulrush are found near freshwater bogs, meadows, thickets, swamps, and around the perimeter of lakes and ponds, this plant is a favorite nesting material and food among geese, ducks, and other waterfowl. The roots are also edible for many animals including humans, though the plant is deer resistant.

 Green Bulrush at maturity, this tall, upright dark-green sedge will grow to a maximum height between three and four and a half feet tall, and two to four feet wide. Multiple heads rise from the base of the plant at slight angles with stems sprouting in varying lengths. Each light-green stalk holds between six and 11 blade-like leaves that are approximately 18" long and one inch wide.

Due to similar characteristics,  Green Bulrush plant is often mistaken for Bottlebrush Sedge, Panicled Bulrush or Mosquito Bulrush. Between May and August, these plants display golden-brown, spiky blooms with three stamens that develop into tiny achenes. Once ripened, the Green Bulrush produces round seed pods that darken to rich amber color with dense bristles attached. Green Bulrush star-like seed clusters are self-sown, easily distributed by wind, have an aggressive growth pattern and can remain viable for up to 40 years.
