 The Square Stem Bulrush is a tall plant that grows to heights of between one and six feet in an erect manner.

This member of the Bulrush family is known for its love of water and moist parts of North American, particularly the shores of various lakes, beaches, and rivers. Although the Square Stem Bulrush loves the moist areas around the shores of bodies of water, it has been known to survive in standing water as deep as three feet in depth.

Because of its location along with deep bodies of water, there is rarely a tree canopy to provide shade meaning the Square Stem Bulrush has become accustomed to bright light and full sun.

  The Square Stem Bulrush grows with single stems climbing from a single base with between one and five stems ascending from each. There is a bloom that begins to a breakthrough in late Spring and continues to appear throughout the Summer. However, this is almost insignificant and takes the form of four to eight bristles that can be seen at the top of each stem. The foliage of this Bulrush species is small and tends to grow at the base of the stem in the form of two to six leaves at the base of the stem. The deep green main leaf id perennial and does not provide any Fall interest. There is a fruit that grows each Summer on the Square Stem Bulrush that is small and comes in shades of purple, orange, and brown before maturing to a deep brown color.
