A charismatic and unusual dwarf 'Rush' producing bright green clumps of iris-like foliage, which produce truly impressive dark brown, almost black seed heads perched on the top of each leaf, which with a little imagination could be a swarm of flying hedgehogs! It is astonishingly adaptable, perfect for planting in shallow water at a pond's edge, but thriving in damp or wet soil, and even putting up a brave display in ordinary moist garden soil, where it will provide interest all summer long.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
Common name:Starhead, Flying Hedgehogs, Dagger leaf rush, swordleaf rush, Beaver Dam Plant, and three-stamened rush.
