Hard Stem Bulrush (Schoenoplectus lacustris)


Hard Stem Bulrush: Schoenoplectus lacustris, or the hard stem bulrush, is a North American native species. It is a beautiful water plant in the moderately warm USDA plant hardiness zones, thriving in full or partial sunshine.


In nature, the hard stem bulrush thrives flood plains in saltwater marshes, freshwater swamps, and near stream and ditch banks. It does best in shallow water, under six inches deep.


TN Nursery customers purchase the hard stem bulrush to install in ponds or small lakes, water gardens, rain gardens, and natural areas prone to standing water. While it strongly prefers water, the hard stem bulrush is surprisingly drought-tolerant.


It is a hardy ornamental grass--heat-tolerant, cold-tolerant, pest-resistant, and disease-resistant, and it is unfussy about soil type or quality. Once you plant the hardstem bulrush, it requires little to no additional care.


Hard Stem Bulrush Assists in the Prevention of Soil Erosion


Water is a significant cause of soil erosion. Moving water can wash out the earth during motion--from waves, wind, or running its natural course.


The addition of water-loving ornamental grasses can help mitigate this harmful force. The roots of the hard stem bulrush will set into the ground, covering the soil and helping to secure it into place and make a more stable ecosystem.


The Impressive Appearance of Hard Stem Bulrush


This marsh grass grows in impressively sized underwater mounds and spreads relatively wide. It grows approximately four to five feet above the water's surface. The stems are bright green and upright and reproduce yearly by dropping seeds. Some gardeners like planting it in containers that they submerge under the water to control the size and spread.


The flowers form at the tips of the stems. They are brown and have a lovely, earthy, organic appearance.
