Great Bulrush is good for habitat reconstruction and erosion control along areas with occasional flooding! This sedge has soft stems and orange-brown, many-flowered spikelets & scaled nutlets arranged in drooping clusters. Leaves and stalks of Great Bulrush have been used by Native Americans for weaving mats and bags! The mats were used inside wigwams to cover the lower walls, or for sitting and eating upon. Water birds use this plant for a nesting cover!
