Wool Grass Plants (Scirpus cyperinus)
Wool Grass Plants: Scirpus cyperinus, or wool grass plants, is a North American native perennial ornamental species that grows in all but the most extreme USDA plant hardiness zones. You might also know wool grass plants by the alternative common names:
- ● Woolgrass
- ● Woolgrass bulrush
- ● Cotton grass
- ● Cotton grass bulrush
- ● Brown wooly sedge
In nature, you'd likely find this species in the full sun near wet habitats, including ditches, streams, swamps, flood plains, or bogs. This ornamental plays an essential role in a wet ecosystem. It helps to retain the soil's integrity and minimize the harm of soil erosion that often comes from flooding.
Woolgrass takes its name from its flower--a brown fleece-like blooms with a fluffy, cotton texture. The flowers remain on the stem into the late fall or early winter, adding interest after the rest of your plants go into cold dormancy.

Scirpus cyperinus is a hardy and resilient plant. It is pest-resistant, disease-resistant, heat-tolerant, and cold-tolerant.
