Schoenoplectus corymbosus is a hardy, evergreen, robust, reed-like, fast-growing sedge that grows partially submerged in water.
From September to April, the long, tough, green, flowering stems are tipped with golden-brown flowers.
This attractive sedge is extensively utilised for mat and basket weaving.
This is a wetland plant that will add a feeling of authenticity when planted on the edges of a pond. It can also be used in boggy areas, among wet pebbles and in grey-water systems. It helps to keep pond water clean and healthy, and creates habitat for fish fry and frogs. It is used extensively for the rehabilitation of wetlands or other permanently wet areas.
Plant in full sun and prune and remove dead stems once a year.
