Slender Clubrush Isolepis cernua

Native. Not threatened.


Routinely found in estuarine situations, this species is adaptable and can also be found in freshwater and brackish wetland environments with little or no saline component. 


This wee rush appears to be fruiting much of the year, losing the head only for the winter. It can be found on both sides of the river of the Ramsar site. In the Dune Garden, this species appeared around 2020, and spread widely across the wetland area within two years and is now an abundant species.

Very widespread on a global scale being found throughout Australasia, Europe, Africa and North and South America.
