Juncus effusus 'Spiralis Twister'

Corkscrew rush

One of the true sedges that happily grows in mud or water. 

Despite its reputation as a novelty plant it can be used to stabilise wet banks of streams and rivers. 

Although slow to establish, the rhizomatous, creeping roots will lock wet soil in place and reduce erosion. 

The stems are curly, like a corkscrew and if gently tugged will spring back into place. 

The flowers are negligible but the stems are interesting additions to a flower arrangement. Loves the wet in full sun.
