Juncus effusus

Juncus effusus

Rush

Common Rush is a wonderful wet site plant, with deep green spaghetti-shaped leaves that stand stiffly upright.  The ivory-white flowers appearing in summer are not showy, but they make an interesting contrast to the unusual foliage, and their seeds produce food for many small birds.  Juncus effusus is an attractive upright element for ponds, rain gardens and swampy areas, especially since it is evergreen.
