Juncus effusus 'Unicorn'

Soft Rush

Plant Type: Grass - Ornamental

This is a vast improvement on the older varieties of Spiral Rush. Leaves are round and stem-like, with a unique corkscrew spiral all the way up to the tip. The selection is tall and sturdy, with a deep green colour and evergreen habit in mild-winter regions. Flowers are brownish and insignificant. 'Unicorn' is a superb choice for beside a pond or stream, as a marginal water garden plant, or in any damp sunny area. Great foliage for cut flower arranging. Stems may be trimmed back hard in spring.
