Scirpus subterminalis of Michigan Flora.
Usually submersed (except for tip of the fertile culm) in water up to 1.5 m deep in lakes, ponds, bog pools, rivers, and boggy ditches, growing on sand, marl, muck, or peat.
Numerous limp, hair-like culms are produced when the plant is growing in water; these are contrasted with the similar structures of Eleocharis acicularis, E. robbinsii, and Juncus militaris, with which this species may grow, in couplets 26–28 of Key A, to aquatic plants with all leaves floating or submersed.
