Dark Green Bulrush (Scirpus atrovirens)

Green Bulrush: Scirpus atrovirens, or the green bulrush, is a North American native ornamental wetland grass. It is a common sight in and around rivers, marshes, swamps, wetlands, ponds, ditches, bogs, streams, flood plains, and other slow-draining locations across most moderately-warm USDA plant hardiness zones.

Green bulrush prefers full sunshine, but it also does well in partial sun. It generally stays under three feet tall but occasionally grows up to four feet high.

Green bulrush has a robust root system that helps to avoid water erosion as floods recede. It actively grows throughout most of the year and displays its flowers during the late summer months. 

You may also know Scirpus atrovirens by other common names, including the following: 

  • Dark green bulrush
  • Dark green bulsedge
  • Black bulrush
  • Black bulsedge 

Have a Slow Draining Spot? Try Planting Green Bulrush 

Your effort to grow anything in a slow-draining part of the yard presents a challenge. Most ornamental plants don't like continuous moisture and run the risk of mildew or disease. However, the reverse is true with the green bulrush. It loves that excess moisture and will thrive in any area with standing water--it even has mild tolerance for saltwater.

Not only will it flourish in this location, but it will also look beautiful and add visual interest to the space. 

The Green Bulrush Is a Lovely Addition to a Water Garden 

TN Nursery customers order this sedge for wet applications, including these: 

  • Water Garden
  • Rain garden
  • Ponds or along creeks on their properties
  • Wet natural areas 

Its relatively short height--an average of three feet above water--ensures it does not block a beautiful view of the water.

Each plant grows in large tufts of about eight green leaves, yellow-green to dark green. Small brown flowers appear on the plants in the late summer and remain until they drop off in the autumn.
