The Juncus Effusus refers to as Soft Rush, Common Rush, or Juncus interior. It is a flowering plant and perennial herbaceous species that can be found within the Juncaceae family. Juncus Effusus has a vast distribution range globally, with it being considered to be a native plant species in North America, South America, Asia, Europe, and Africa. Beyond its native range, it has a naturalized presence in Madagascar, Australia, and many other oceanic islands. The plant is most typically found thriving in very wet locations such as marshes, wetlands, and riparian areas.

A Detailed Look at Juncus Effusus

Juncus Effusus typically develops in medium size clumps with an approximate height of 4 foot 11 inches or 1.5 meters. It can commonly be found in ditches with good soil drainage or along the banks of small to medium size streams. The plant species can be extremely invasive and will spread to any location that possesses abundantly moist soil. It even tends to grow in areas near beaver dams. The physical appearance of the plant features smooth and rounded stem cylinders with a pith-like consistency. The inflorescence of the plant is yellow and usually protrudes out of a single stem approximately 8 inches or 20 centimeters from the top where the stem ends. This top portion, referred to as the bract, is slightly yellowish colored. At the lower end of the stem, you'll find leaves that have reduced to a brownish colored sheath. The Uses of Juncus Effusus The plant uses in many ways, some of which you would not expect. In Europe, the plant is often used to construct rushlights, which are an affordable alternative to wax candles. In Japan, the Juncus Effusus is the primary material used to create the woven covering that rests above tatami mats.
