Reed Mace is very often mis-identified as being the "bulrush".
This sad state of affairs arose when the artist Sir Lawrence
Alma-Tadema painted Reed Mace plants in his "Moses
in the Bulrushes". Bulrushes are a much less imposing
pond plant. Reed Mace's fluffy seeds were once used as stuffing
for bedding and pillows. The leaves were used for making
baskets and boats.
