A tall, handsome bulrush, producing fluffy-looking brown nodding flower clusters from June-August, and loose dark brown seedheads afterwards. Leaves are narrow and grasslike. This plant is tolerant of sand and gravel, and tends to spread by rhizomes, forming dense tussocks in shallow standing water or wet areas. Provides wetland cover and nesting habitat for birds such as Red-Winged Blackbirds (Agelaius phoeniceus), which may build their nests halfway up a clump of stems in the spring or summer, caterpillar host
