The Hard Stem Bul Rush plant is one that is often seen growing in shallow water or along the banks of a water source, such as a pond. When you look at a mature plant, you'll notice clusters at the base of the stem. These clusters are usually open during the day before closing at night. It is where the seeds of the plant located. Animals tend to gather the seeds and disperse them nearby, allowing more plants to grow. It's common to see anywhere from two to three clusters. One the stem or as many as 30 to 40 depending on the age of the plant. The spiked clusters usually don't grow longer than about an inch in length. Small fruits develop in the spring and summer inside the clusters.
