|Description||Small, unique plant forms broad clumps of thin erect jointed stems; excellent used in mass plantings or as a garden specimen. Highly adaptable, it accepts relatively dry conditions or wet ares such as the shallows of a pond. Useful in seaside gardens. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Slow growing to 2 to 3 ft. high, equal spread.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Poolside|
|Design Ideas||Cape rush is particularly well suited to the shores of water gardens and pools, particularly around boulders and in conjunction with rock waterfalls. Really lends the illusion of water in a dry stream bed. Super cool in swanky pots for both Asian and modern garden styles. A versatile plant that offers fine textured interest to broadleaf compositions.|
|Companion Plants||Combine cape rush with other rugged heat lovers such as Navajo White Autumn Sage, (Salvia greggii 'Navajo White'), Red Rocks Penstemon, (Penstemon x mexicali 'Red Rocks'), Little Ollie Dwarf Olive, (Olea europea 'Montra') and Otto Quast Spanish Lavender, (Lavandula stoechas 'Otto Quast').|
|Care||Tolerates a wide range of soil types. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.|
|Lore||This rush is a valuable roof thatching material within its southern African range.|
