Round fruited rush (Juncus compressus) native Shallow water plant
Round fruited rush (Juncus compressus) is a native shallow water plant. Tufts of narrow,flat, glaucous leaves sprout from short creeping rhizomes.Â Compact, rather rounded heads of brown seed cases cluster on short, strong, green, pith-filled stems.
Flowers June and July.
Height to 30cm (12 in).
We would recommend a planting basket of at least 11cm across for one plant or, for more impact, plant several of the same variety in a larger basket.
We ship all marginal water plants bare root, this means that we wash the soil off before packing plants. During the summer months we may need to trim some of the foliage back for shipping.
