Square Stem Bulrush (Schoenoplectus pungens)


Square Stem Bulrush: Schoenoplectus pungens, commonly the square stem bulrush, is a species native to North and South America. It is a tall, graceful, water-loving plant that will flourish in almost all USDA plant hardiness zones. It does well in either full or partial sunshine.


Square stem bulrush occurs in nature in several watery habitats. These may include flood plains, bogs, freshwater swamps, saltwater marshes, near creeks, and even ditches constantly filled with standing water. It usually grows best in shallow water and demands six inches or less.


TN Nursery customers invest in square stem bulrush for a variety of wet gardens, including:


  •      Use in ponds or picturesque lakes
  •      Water gardens
  •      Rain gardens
  •      Natural areas that often hold water.


Although it prefers a wet environment, the square stem bulrush is also (surprisingly!) drought-tolerant.


It is an easy-care ornamental aquatic grass--heat-tolerant, cold-tolerant, disease-resistant, pest-resistant, and saltwater-tolerant. It is unconcerned about soil type or quality. Once you plant the square stem bulrush, you will give it no other care.


Square Stem Bulrush Helps to Fight Soil Erosion


Water is almost always in motion, and the energy that creates that movement also causes erosion. The moving water comes from wind, waves, or running its course down a river.


Fortunately, adding water-loving species like the square stem bulrush can help to fight this damage. The roots of the square stem bulrush will anchor into the earth below the water and help hold it in its place. As a result, it adds to a more sustainable environment.


Square Stem Bulrush Displays Charm and Natural Beauty


This species is most famous for growing in swamps in large underground mounds with a broad reach. It grows about three or four feet above the surface of the water. The stems are a deep green hue, stand tall, and self-seed each year.
