Wool grass plant is famous for its restoration and buffer action system.
Scirpus cyperinus is commonly known as wool grass plant. These are the native plants of the United States and belong to the family of Cyperaceae. It has other common names like cotton grass bulrush, brown wooly sedge, and teddy bear paws. These aquatic plants are found in wet habitats such as marshes, ditches, streams, and ponds.
Cotton grass bulrush is an herbaceous and clump-forming perennial densely tufted plant with a size of 3 - 6 feet height at maturity. They have fibrous, short, and rhizomatous root systems, which helps in forming large colonies. Sterile shoots are on the lower side, while fertile shoots are on the upper side. The fertile shoots are strouted, unbranched, three angled, and longitudinal.
In Scirpus cyperinus plants, 5 to 9 leaves grow on the lower half of the culm, and venation is parallel. They are shiny, medium green, furrowed, longitudinal, 8 - 32 inches long, and 3 - 10 mm wide. The leaf sheaths are green to reddish-brown. The color of the foliage turns yellowish-brown during the fall season. The beautiful flowers are small, reddish-brown, or copper brown with 6 mm.
These plant species bloom from August to October. They prefer full to partial sun to progress and tolerate total sun exposure.
They nourish in moist to wet soils, mucky, peats, and shallower soil and tolerate drought soil conditions. The plant thrives in damp soils or lands with standing water. Neutral, slightly acidic to alkaline soils are preferable, with a pH range of 6.8 - 7.2. These herbaceous perennials are very easy to grow and maintenance-free.
These plants also form a buffer against wave and wind action, which helps them tolerate unfavorable conditions and grow well. It is best to plant them in water gardens and rain gardens because they can control soil erosion and help in restoring systems.
