Scirpus cernuus (Low Bulrush) - A very attractive grasslike, rush relative growing to 8 inches tall with bright green evergreen foliage. Plant in part shade to full sun along the coast, directly in water at a depth of 2 in. or at the water's edge. Useful singularly, in mass or as a ground cover. In the summer, attractive dark brown small flowers appear at the end of each stem and contrast well with the foliage. Cut back yearly for fresh new growth. Some call this plant Fiber Optics Grass (quite descriptive!) and Bulrush is sometimes spelled Bullrush.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Scirpus cernuus.
