Scirpus, also known as Bulrush and Club Grass, is a group of decorative hardy and frost-tender Sedges. The tiny, reddish-brown flowers are produced in spikelets, in the summer. S. cernuus is a tender kind found wild in the tropics. This plant has thin, drooping stems bearing small, light green, grass-like flower heads at their tips. This plant needs a minimum temperature of 45°F (7°C).

These plants grow well by the water. Grow them in containers filled with rich to clay soil and set in water that is up to 5 inches (12 cm) over the crown, in sun or partial shade. The tender kinds should be brought indoors for the winter and grown in pots filled with equal parts of loam and leaf mold.

They can be divided in the spring and summer.
