The Three Square Sedge is well known for its multiple uses, including weaving baskets and hats.

Schoenoplectus pungens are species of flowering plant belonging to the sedge family of Cyperaceae. Three Square Sedge and Three square bulrushes are the shared names of this plant.

It is a herbaceous plant with a height of 1.5 – 4 feet at maturity. It is V-shaped towards its base and flattened at the tip.

These plants have dense roots and rhizomes that help in forming new plants. It consists of 3 angled, stout, erect stem, which is glamorous and light to medium green or bluish-green.

The flowers consist of sessile clusters and have small heads of several small spikelets that vary in colors. They bloom in many pretty colors like bright orange, red, purple, or translucent. These beautiful flowers attract hummingbirds and bees for pollination, but they also reproduce using spores.
