Juncus Effusus Var. Decipiens 'Curly-Wurly'
A fascinating new dwarf cultivar, coming true from seed. Forms a tight clump of corkscrewing and spiralling shiny green rush leaves, later decorated with brown seedheads. Perfect in a pot, rockery or poolside.
Sow at any time, in a well-lit position, into a good, soil-based compost. Cover seeds thinly and keep moist at around 15 degrees C or 60 degrees F. Some New Zealand species can be very slow indeed and may need cooler temperatures before they will come up. Grass seedlings should be potted on and grown on singly, or in clumps for more rapid establishment of a large specimen.
