Description

Common Names
Beak Reed
Classification
Herbaceous, Reed
This tall water reed is named for the appearance of its twined leaves branching from the main stem. They form a structure resembling an open beak. The long stalks are used as a weaving material for a variety of goods, and are an excellent source of cordage fibres. Beak Reed is a useful febrifuge and anti-emetic. The medicinal uses of this plant derive from the inner pulp of the root bulb near the base of the stalk.
