Dark Green Bulrush is native to much of North America. It is found in wet prairies, floodplains, sedge meadows, the edges of ponds and rivers, in drainage ditches and wetlands. It has a high tolerance to wet areas, including standing water. Scirpus atrovirens spreads by rhizomes and forms clumps of grasslike, dark green foliage. In late spring, seedheads provide food for waterfowl and songbirds. While it is commonly called Bulrush, it is not a rush (Juncaceae family); it is a sedge in the Cyperaceae family. Useful for restoration projects, the edges of ponds, and wet meadows or anywhere a spreading, moisture-loving plant is needed.
