Plant Details
Botanical Name:
Juncus balticus

Common Name(s):

El Nativo Growers, Inc.
A vigorous native rush that grows by rhizomes. Can be very aggressive and requires a significant amount of space to expand. Best used in a meadow garden or similar landscape. Although a wetland plant, this Juncus can tolerate suprisingly dry conditions. If it gets too dry, the above ground growth will reduce to rhizomes and emerge when it again encounters moisture. Grows to a height of approximately 12-24". Requires virtually no care.

Information by James Campbell, El Nativo Growers 
Dig hole, insert plant slightly higher than soil grade. Disturb root ball very little. No amendments, just native soil. No fertilizers. Backfill the hole .Water lavishly. Mulch top of soil around plant in a 4' diameter circle. - Bert Wilson Las Pilitas
