Bolboschoenus (Bolboschoenus)
Growing in clumps in moist, disturbed soil, bolboschoenus are attractive grasses that spread by seeds produced at the top of long, slender stalks. They are often planted along water gardens to help prevent soil erosion. Their mounding growth habit and profusion of seeds provide food and shelter for local wildlife.

Exploring the Bolboschoenus Plants

6 most common species:
Bolboschoenus planiculmis
Flat-stem clubrush
Flat-stem clubrush is a water-loving plant in the sedge family that is notable for being smaller than most of its near relatives. The plant's root tubers are an important food for the endangered Siberian crane and many other bird species that eat this plant and use it for shelter.
Bolboschoenus maritimus
Puruagrass
Puruagrass is a flowering plant, scientifically known as Bolboschoenus maritimus. It is widespread across continents, including the tropical parts of Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America, and some islands. It grows in wetland habitats.
Bolboschoenus fluviatilis
River bulrush
River bulrush is a wetland Bolboschoenus fluviatilis widely distributed in Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, and some parts of North America, so it's often used as a pond garden plant or a treatment plant for polluted waterways.
Bolboschoenus robustus
Sturdy bulrush
Sturdy bulrush is found in saline and brackish wetlands, marshes, and coastlines. It is a popular plant in gardens. Waterfowl and muskrats eat the seeds in the late summer and fall.
Bolboschoenus yagara
Purua grass
Purua grass (Bolboschoenus yagara) is a wetland plant found in marshes, swamps, and other damp locations. It is an important food source for the Siberian crane during its migration season. In Europe, the plant is at risk because of overconsumption by intensively farmed fish.
Bolboschoenus caldwellii
Caldwell's clubrush
Growing in clumps in moist, disturbed soil, caldwell's clubrush are attractive grasses that spread by seeds produced at the top of long, slender stalks. They are often planted along water gardens to help prevent soil erosion. Their mounding growth habit and profusion of seeds provide food and shelter for local wildlife.

Dracaena
Dracaena
Dracaena are popular house plants that are easy to grow. They can tolerate low-light conditions and require little watering. Their leaves range from variegated to dark green. Their characteristic traits include woody stems that grow slowly but offer a striking appearance for small spaces such as apartments or offices.
Ficus
Fig trees
Fig trees have been cultivated in many regions for their fruits, particularly the common fig, F. carica. Most of the species have edible fruits, although the common fig is the only one of commercial value. Fig trees are also important food sources for wildlife in the tropics, including monkeys, bats, and insects.
Rubus
Brambles
Brambles are members of the rose family, and there are hundreds of different types to be found throughout the European countryside. They have been culturally significant for centuries; Christian folklore stories hold that when the devil was thrown from heaven, he landed on a bramble bush. Their vigorous growth habit can tangle into native plants and take over.
Acer
Maples
The popular tree family known as maples change the color of their leaves in the fall. Many cultural traditions encourage people to watch the colors change, such as momijigari in Japan. Maples popular options for bonsai art. Alternately, their sap is used to create maple syrup.
Prunus
Prunus
Prunus is a genus of flowering fruit trees that includes almonds, cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, and apricots. These are often known as "stone fruits" because their pits are large seeds or "stones." When prunus trees are damaged, they exhibit "gummosis," a condition in which the tree's gum (similar to sap) is secreted to the bark to help heal external wounds.
Solanum
Nightshades
Nightshades is a large and diverse genus of plants, with more than 1500 different types worldwide. This genus incorporates both important staple food crops like tomato, potato, and eggplant, but also dangerous poisonous plants from the nightshade family. The name was coined by Pliny the Elder almost two thousand years ago.
Rosa
Roses
Most species of roses are shrubs or climbing plants that have showy flowers and sharp thorns. They are commonly cultivated for cut flowers or as ornamental plants in gardens due to their attractive appearance, pleasant fragrance, and cultural significance in many countries. The rose hips (fruits) can also be used in jams and teas.
Quercus
Oaks
Oaks are among the world's longest-lived trees, sometimes growing for over 1,000 years! The oldest known oak tree is in the southern United States and is over 1,500 years old. Oaks produce an exceedingly popular type of wood which is used to make different products, from furniture and flooring to wine barrels and even cosmetic creams.
