Soft Rush Grass - 25 Plants $79.99 Description

Soft Rush Grass 

The soft rush grass is known for its beautiful vase-like appearance.

The botanical name is Juncus effusus, belonging to the Juncaceae family. Besides soft rush, it is also commonly known as everyday rush, mat rush, and bog rush. The plant's body looks like a grass vase with pretty little colorful flowers. The grass stems are cylindrical and dark green, while leaves are missing.

The clusters of solid and soft-touch green stems are like chives foliage. The Juncus effusus is a native plant of the Northern United States and Australia, but it is a worldwide versatile plant as it can grow in all garden soils and lands. The typical rush thrives in moist to wet soils, and it can also grow in standing water, dry and tropical lands.

They are primarily found in water gardens, marshes, bogs, wetlands, and boundaries of water bodies (ponds, rivers, and lakes). The plant prefers slightly lower pH, i.e., acidic soil, more than any other type but can tolerate lands with any pH.
