Soft Stem Bulrush 25 Plants $79.99 Description

Soft Stem Bulrush 


Soft Stem Bulrush or Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani, known botanically, is also called great bulrush. Native to the United States and Eurasia.

Soft Stem Bulrush grows where water accumulates, making it a perfect choice for your water garden landscape. Soft Stem Bulrush is a hardy perennial wildflower growing between 2 and 9 feet tall. This plant bears a thick green culm, or hollow shaft, with a delicate cluster of orange-brown flowers that mature into a hard brown seed fruit that appears in May and remains until September. Soft Stem Bulrush appears curvy and can spread more than four feet on its outer edge. The inflorescence of this plant arches downward, making it look adorable, especially when a breeze is blowing. The Soft Stem Bulrush stems feel like a sponge when compressed.

Care and Maintenance

.Soft Stem Bulrush is an ideal candidate for those who have a pond or want to create a water feature in their garden landscape. Soft Stem Bulrush loves the sun, although it can tolerate partial shade. Soft Stem Bulrush plants spread rapidly, creating new plants without any work on your part. Plant Soft Stem Bulrush close to each other, a little less than one foot apart, to create a sensational wall of vibrant green color. Soft Stem Bulrush has deep roots, making it excellent for garden areas where controlling erosion is needed. This plant enjoys silty or peat-based soils, though it will tolerate many soil types that are well drained and moist.  


In the correct planting conditions, Soft Stem Bulrush will blossom as early as May. Small wildlife and waterfowl love to hide amongst this plant's stems. Place your Soft Stem Bulrush among other flowering grass-type perennials that may grow shorter than this plant. Soft Stem Bulrush is a unique option as a container plant.

Soft Stem Bulrush should be a top consideration as an addition to your water garden landscape or as a filler near ponds or near marshy areas.
