    I dont have any pics of it, but it looks like bamboo, it feels like paper thin rough tree bark it grows in segments doesn't get more than 2 a half feet tall and usually has a brown barky cap on the top, no leaves, seems to like areas near water and it's green, any ideas?

    There is a patch of that second rush growing across the road from me.

    Is it called scouring rush?

    Been wondering for years what that was.
