Australian Silver Rush
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' high x 3' wide; hardy to zone 8.
Juncus polyanthemos (G-0508)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
