Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani

Soft stem bulrush

Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani is a tall sedge native throughout the southeast. It occurs naturally in wetland habitats, including brackish marshes. It grows best in full sun, and in soils that are wet to permanently under shallow water. It can grow up to eight feet tall, and produces small red clusters of seeds in the fall. It is a food source for birds of all sizes, and provides good nesting habitat. It dies back almost completely in the winter, but dormant stems can be left to provide necessary over-wintering habitat for pollinators. Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani is an excellent plant for restoration projects and erosion control.
