Corkscrew Rush

Juncus effusus f. Spiralis

Unique and interesting corkscrew-like foliage provides wonderful texture and contrast. Grass-like perennial with tightly-spiraled stems which uncoil as they grow and spread outward and upward. This easy-care, deer-resistant accent plant thrives in boggy soil and provides a wonderful accent when sited at the edges or in the shallows of a water garden.
