Overview

Add a unique twist to your pond or container garden this season with Corkscrew Rush! Ideal for bog edges or standing water up to 4" deep, this grassy perennial features clumps of cylindrical stems which spiral upward to 24" tall. Very tiny green flowers bloom in summer near the tips of each stem.

While Corkscrew Rush may take a while to establish, it is generally easy to keep in wet conditions under full sun. Rhizomes will spread by creeping roots; contain to control unwanted propagation.

Water gardeners use this plant to create a natural looking bog habitat, and the interestingly shaped stems are often clipped and used to add architectural flair to flower arrangements and center pieces. This dense Rush can also help control pond shoreline erosion. Zones 4-11.

Approximate Purchase Size: 12" to 18"
