Plant Notes:Bulbous Wood Rush is a native herbaceous perennial in the Rush family (Juncaceae). It can be found throughout the northern two-thirds of Alabama. Bulbous Wood Rush grows in dry hardwood forests, along roads, on roadside banks, in cemeteries, and occasionally in lawns. It is a perennial from a short knotty rhizome. Leaves are primarily basal. Plants are solitary or form a small clump. The leaves often have a white swollen bulb-like base. Leaves are linear and entire with long white hairs along the margins. There are 2-3 cauline leaves. Flowers are produced in glomerules. The central glomerule is sessile or nearly so and cylindrical. Other cylindrical glomerules are on straight, ascending to erect Inflorescence branches. A single leaf-like bract subtends the inflorescence. It is shorter than the inflorescence. Individual flowers have 6 shiny reddish-brown tepals with clear margins. The anthers are 1-2 times the length of the filaments. The fruit is an obovoid shiny brown capsule.—A. Diamond
