Creeping Spikerush (Eleocahris palustris) is a short grass-like plant of lakeshores and a variety of wetlands. Spikerushes have a single stem with a terminal flower spike and no leaves. The seeds make good wildlife food and the dense stems proved great cover for young fish while they are flooded in spring.
