Other names for this plant include the Tall Bulrush or Great Bulrush. It is a water-loving, hardy wildflower that can grow anywhere between 2 and 9 feet in height, though taller is more common. This perennial plant is happy in hardiness zones 3-9 and thrives in ponds, wetlands, swamps, wet prairies, and other damp or moist environments.

 

 

 

It consists of a thick green culm, or hollow shaft, with a delicate cluster of flowers at the top. The Soft Stem Bulrush is a popular addition to any wetland restoration or pond landscaping project. The flowers are an attractive orangish-brown color and eventually mature into a hard brown seed fruit. A process that occurs between July and September, though blossoms can be found as early as May in some cases. It does not have noticeable leaf blades, though there are leaves that hug the shaft, especially near the bottom of the plant. The plants like to grow in clusters, with a 4-5 foot spread, and prefer silty or peaty soils, though it is reasonably tolerant of many soil types.
