Discover the impressive power of Common Tule or Giant Bulrush - Schoenoplectus acutus var. occidentalis. This colossal plant, indigenous to freshwater marshes, lakes, and stream banks across North America’s lower elevations, with specific prevalence in California, creates expansive colonies on wet regions’ fringes. Its formidable, leafless and cylindrical stems, tall and striking, reach heights of 12 to 15 feet, becoming a dramatic vertical accent even when grown in containers, suitable for smaller gardens. Ideal for larger landscapes, it creates dense thickets as a pond or riparian plant. Adapted to full sun exposure, Common Tule appreciates a regular watering schedule, flourishing at various elevations up to 8200 feet. Known for stabilizing banks and creating a thriving habitat for wildlife, it's an excellent choice for ecological landscaping. Its thick half to one inch stems are resilient, sprouting after exposure to fire. The plant is propagated through seeds and rhizomes. However, it doesn't tolerate extended periods of deep water inundation. Experience the ornamental and ecological potential of the Common Tule today.
