Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani, commonly called softstem bulrush or great bulrush, is a rhizomatous emergent aquatic perennial of cosmopolitan distribution that typically grows in a variety of wetlands including the margins of ponds/lakes, banks of slow-moving rivers/streams, marshes, fens, bogs, wet prairies, ditches and wet depressions along roadsides and railroad tracks (see Steyermark). It is native to Canada and the U.S. south to South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia

Great bulrush typically forms a slowly-spreading clump of rush-like stems (culms) to 4-8’ tall. Leaf sheaths appear at the base of the stems. Leaf blades are typically absent, but if present are very small (1-4″ long). Photosynthesis primarily takes place in the stems. Branched inflorescences (to 6″ long) appear at the tips of fertile stem ends in late spring to summer. Each inflorescence contains a compound umbel of brown spikelets each of which contains brownish florets. Each fertile floret gives way to an achene which ripens to gray-brown.
