Juncus inflexus 'Afro' - Bog Plants

Please be aware Aramax are experiencing significant delays in freight in and around Auckland. We will not send any fragile plants in and around Auckland (unless you tell us too, at your own risk! ), until it is safe to do so. You can still order so you can garauntee plant supply, but please understand there are delays in getting plants to you safely. Freight out of Auckland, Waiheke Island and the South Island are still experiencing significant delays. We are working hard with a limited workforce under strict conditions which is also causing a delay in getting orders to you. We thank you for your patience and investing in upcycled and pre-loved plants, healthier for the environment and healthier for you! :-)

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!
