The true bulrush is extremely vigorous, a British native pond plant. Bold cylindrical dark green stems arise from a creeping rootstock. A good filtration plant, it is robust and resistant to waterfowl, making good nesting cover if allowed to grow into large clumps. Formerly used for thatching and furniture making. Height to 160 cm.
