Rush, Soft
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.

Juncus inflexus 'Blue Arrows'

Rush, Hard
Although often grown as a wetland plant, Juncus inflexus is quite drought tolerant once established. Blue Arrows Rush thrives in heat and full sun. It fits perfectly beside a pool, pond, or stream where its reflection captures the mood of an aquatic paradise. Blue Arrows’ soft blue-green color and beautiful, upright form make it irresistible in container combos and annual beds. In the wild, Juncus inflexus is found in wet soils along streams, ditches, and on wet, sandy and peaty hillsides. This genus is one of our favorites: Juncus are tough, versatile, and evergreen in most climates ’ they’re versatile plants underused in the trade.

Juncus tenuis

Juncus tenuis 'Blue Dart'

Rush, Common
'Blue Dart' features attractive, linear, blue to blue-green foliage. It is sometimes used in containers as an alternative to dracaena. 'Blue Dart' is sometimes sold in commerce today as a cultivar of Juncus inflexus and Juncus tenuis. Industry naming is confused. Plant form is closer to Juncus inflexus and may indeed by a cultivar thereof. Blooms May throught September. Easily grown in consistently moist to wet soils in full sun. Tolerates light shade, but performs best in full sun. Tolerates heavy soils. Needs ample moisture, but also does surprisingly well in slightly moist soils that do not dry out. Plants may take time to establish, but once established will slowly spread by creeping rhizomes. May freely self-seed in optimum growing conditions. Propagate by division in early spring.
