Grey Club-rush - Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani
Closely resembles Common Club-rush (Schoenoplectus lacustris) but the stems are more glaucous-grey. It is also usually a shorter plant to about 1.5 metres.
Mainly coastal in brackish dykes and beside tidal rivers, however it does sometimes occur inland in fresh water.
Flowers June and July.
Less common than Schoenoplectus lacustris and mainly coastal, it is infrequent inland.
Uncommon (but probably increasing) in Leicestershire and Rutland. In the 1979 Flora survey of Leicestershire it was found in 2 of the 617 tetrads.
