A true rush with smooth, upright, cylindrical, unjointed, spire-like green stems (not leaves) which grow in spreading basal clumps. Easily grown in moist to wet soils in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun. Performs well in standing water to 4” deep, but will also grow well in garden soils as long if the soils are kept consistently moist. This is the Minnesota Native, sourced from Minnesota. Can be planted in natural waterways.
