Juncus inflexus 'Afro' - Bog Plants

We use Aramax couriers for all our deliveries and they are currently taking too long to deliver our plants. We wll not be dispatching any more orders until the new year when they are back to normal.

Please read our condtions of sale here. We go to great lengths to pack our plants well for transport but sometimes couriers can still damage them or leave them without light and water for far too long. In this case we are sorry but we cannot be responsible for thier mistakes. If you have lost or damaged plants please lodge a claim with them here.  You can arrange for a pick upin Kumeu from here. And if you know of a fantastic courier service that will travel to rural places within NZ we would love to hear from them. Please tell us your amazing story here!

Juncus inflexus 'Afro'
Juncus inflexus 'Afro' (Blue Medusa Rush) I just love this little plant. This is one of my favorites. I just love how it looks like me on a bad hair day! - This rush has powdery blue-green cylindrical stems that twist and spiral to 12-18 inches tall and bear tiny brown flowers in cymes near the tips. It spreads about 2 feet wide. It is like the more common Juncus effusus 'Spiralis' but the bluer stems are much thicker and the plant overall is more robust - it also reportedly tolerates drier conditions. Plant in moist soils or shallow water (to 3" deep) in full sun or light shade. It is hardy to 0 degrees F or less. Some gardeners in colder climates report that cooler climates make for bluer plants. It is great for the water's edge, in a border or a container. This interesting plant can spark a conversation in any garden!
