Juncus polyanthemos
at Digging Dog

Australian Silver Rush

Juncus

Juncus polyanthemos full sun  partial shade

Easily swayed by the slightest breeze, the upright thicket of slender, gray-green cylindrical stems has an engaging kinetic presence. This versatile grasslike perennial yields small brown flower clusters at its stem tips and makes an exceptional fine textured companion for a lush grass such as Molinia ‘Bergfreund’ in a mixed planting or along a pond or stream bank.

Found sauntering about Australia’s coastal areas, it can handle dry or moist sites and appreciates a hard late winter pruning to ensure fresh looking spring growth.

Blooms July – September.

Size: 4' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.
