Eleocharis palustris, Creeping spikerush, is a perennial colonizer which forms a dense root mass along pond shores creeping out into 4-6" of water. Sometimes mistaken for a grass, creeping spikerush forms nice tight clusters of green individual culms just about 1' tall with a single scaly flower head on top of each one. Creeping spikerush is a pioneering wetland species that handles water fluctuations quite well making it ideally suited for basins, conservation and stormwater runoff projects.
