      As promised,

      Thus go the rushes, Oh:

      Sitina is a rush, different from reed at a high level (order Juncales).
      Common species here (Cz) are Juncus effusus (sounds like most of my
      output!) - sitina rozkladita and Juncus conglomeratus - sitina klubkata. Not
      to the best of an awful lot of Czech knowledge used for basketry/weaving for
      the last century.

      Rakos is a reed (order Poales), single species in CR - Phragmites
      australis - used to make walls, fences, roof-thatch, chair backs, a.t.d.

      Typha latifolia, the cat-tail, reedmace or bulrush of the previous posting
      is used occasionally for some of the above.
