Bashful Bulrush (Trichophorum Planifolium)

Habitat

Bashful Bulrush requires open-canopied forest with little shrub cover and excellent drainage (Crins, 1986). It is found on semi-open south- or west-facing slopes in deciduous and mixed woods. The climate is moderated year round at all stations due to the close proximity of Lake Ontario and the warmer-than-normal microclimate at most sites due to the open south- or south-west-facing slope.
