Product Description

Soft Rush - Juncus effusus

Soft rush is a water-loving perennial plant that is very popular in water gardens. It is also sometimes referred to as common rush, mat rush, and bog rush. It grows in clumps of attractive stems that are bright green in color, similar in appearance to many types of grass. The edges of those stems bloom with clusters of tiny yellow flowers close to the tips of the blades in the summer. The flowers generally stick around from June through August. When fall arrives, the stems turn a gentle shade of yellow which then fades into brown with the arrival of winter. 

This plant can be grown in hardiness zones four through nine. It prefers full sun but can also grow successfully in partial shade. Wet soil is important for this rush because it is native to wetlands and marshy areas. It can even be grown in standing water that is several inches deep. When it is healthy, soft rush can grow up to four feet in height and have a similar spread. It grows at a fast rate once it is established. This is a healthy plant that does not have any special issues with pests or diseases. It should be cut back in the early spring, but other than that it requires little maintenance. This is a hardy plant that should grow well without much assistance so long as its basic needs are met. 

Soft rush is often grown along the edges of watery areas. That can include ponds, lakes, and man-made water features. It looks very natural and at home in those locations while also adding a splash of bright green color to make it stand out. While it works well as part of a water garden, some gardeners also choose to place it in a decorative container to help it show off on its own.
