Lake Club-rush

Lake Club Rush 1

We have noticed these water plants growing at several lakes in Perth recently. They are called Lake Club-rush (Schoenoplectus validus) and these photos were taken at Lake Claremont and Herdsman Lake. They grow in lakes near the coast around Perth and the southwest corner of Western Australia – and also in many locations in the eastern states of Australia.

They are in flower at present and grow to a height of about 2m.
