Tules or bulruhes

When the Spanish colonized Mexico and Central America, they borrowed from the native inhabitants the Nahuatl word tollin for a bulrush. The English-speaking settlers of the West in turn borrowed the Spanish word tule to refer to certain varieties of bulrushes native to California.
