Spike Rush

Spike RushSpike Rush


Spike Rush can grow in shallow water or moist soils and grow from rhizomes. Stems are unbranched with sheaths around the base but can be round, square, or flattened depending on the species. All spike rushes have small fruiting spikes at the tips of the stem.

Natural Control

Spike Rush can be cut down or the roots can be dug up. But it is difficult to control them this way because they will regrow from the left over seeds.

Chemical Control

 Clearcast Herbicide and MSO Adjuvant are specifically designed for use in and around water.  These products are the ultimate solution in eliminating most emergent vegetation for long-lasting results with minimal retreatment.
