Schoenoplectus pungens

Common Three-Square

This is a distinctive looking plant, with a an erect and pointed central stem for the flowerhead. This stem is triangular in cross-section and grows 20 to 60 cm tall. The flowerhead/seedhead consists of one or several oval shaped spikelets. They are in a tight cluster near the top of the stem, brown in colour, and growing on one side. The leaves are grass-like, and grow from the base of the plant. The plant is a long-lived perennial, spreads by rhizomes, and likes wet and boggy places. It browns off over winter, and produces new growth in spring.
