POND PLANT BIO:
This grass-like evergreen is known as Juncus patens or, commonly Blue Rush. Round leafless blue-green stems grow upright reaching a size of 1-2.5 tall providing a striking vertical accent to plantings! From spring to fall small inconspicuous golden-brown tassel-like flowers emerge just below the tip of the textured stems. Very adaptable, tolerating a wide range of conditions, it enjoys sun with lots of moisture, but will tolerate dry conditions once established. And its robust root system is excellent for soil stabilization! Most importantly, deer will leave it alone!
