Exploring the Club-rushes Plants

8 most common species:
Scirpus cyperinus
Woolgrass
The woolgrass is a grass-like aquatic perennial plant, native to wet meadows, marshes, and swamps of eastern North America. The plant got its name from its reddish, wooly spikelets, although the appearance of woolgrass varies depending on the habitat. The Native Americans used woolgrass to make bags and mats.
Scirpus atrovirens
Green bulrush
Also known as the green bulrush, *Scirpus atrovirens* is a perennial sedge that is native to eastern Canada and the United States. It can grow up to 10 cm tall and is unbranched. The plant has yellowish-green to dark-green linear leaves. It is known to be a psychoactive plant, with the Tarahumara of Mexico considering it a respected shamanic plant.
Scirpus sylvaticus
Wood club-rush
Wood club-rush is a tall flowering perennial that is found growing in wet areas such as bogs and coastal regions. It reproduces through rhizomes and is food to small mammals, birds, and muskrats.
Scirpus microcarpus
Panicled bulrush
Panicled bulrush (Scirpus microcarpus) is a type of sedge found across North America, from Alaska to Baja California to New England. It's also variously known as barberpole bulrush and smallfruit bulrush. Though it can grow over 1 m tall, the flowers and fruit are mere millimeters across.
Scirpus pendulus
Rufous bulrush
Rufous bulrush (Scirpus pendulus) is a grasslike plant that thrives in many damp habitats from riversides to man-made ditches. The plant is an important food source for many species of beetles and insects. Ducks, Canada geese, and trumpeter swans also feast on the seeds. This bulrush stands out from similar species because it has conspicuous green central veins on its floral scales.
Scirpus georgianus
Georgia bulrush
Georgia bulrush are foliage plants that are popularly cultivated for ponds and water gardens. These grass-like evergreen perennials provide an interesting aesthetic with their flower-topped strands arching over. Georgia bulrush species are hardy slow-growers that can be used for ground cover.
Scirpus hattorianus
Mosquito bulrush
Mosquito bulrush are foliage plants that are popularly cultivated for ponds and water gardens. These grass-like evergreen perennials provide an interesting aesthetic with their flower-topped strands arching over. Mosquito bulrush species are hardy slow-growers that can be used for ground cover.
Scirpus pedicellatus
Stalked bulrush
Stalked bulrush are foliage plants that are popularly cultivated for ponds and water gardens. These grass-like evergreen perennials provide an interesting aesthetic with their flower-topped strands arching over. Stalked bulrush species are hardy slow-growers that can be used for ground cover.

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 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.
