Wool Grass

Scirpus cyperinus

Wool Grass is a densely-tufted, clump-forming perennial with an erect stem that is leafy up to the flower cluster. Many brown, woolly bristles surround the nutlets giving the terminal inflorescense a fuzzy appearance and Wool Grass its common name.



This is one of several important species of wetland plants, many of them emergents, that provide food and cover for waterfowl and other wildlife. Nearly 30 species of Scirpus occur in eastern North America.
