Juncus patens
“California Gray Rush”

Perfect for a pond garden, next to a stream or any moist spot, this CA native rush likes average-wet soil & can grow in shallow standing water. Average water’s just fine, too! Once established it’s remarkably tolerant of dry situations. Oceany grey green tubular leaves form a graceful mound of vertical texture with unique flowers in Summer. Evergreen, but can benefit from a hard cut back in Spring to tidy things up. Divide in early-Fall or Spring for more plants. To 18” wide & 24” high. Clay tolerant & great for under oaks!
