Juncus leseurii

Salt Rush.

We currently do not grow this plant.

An interesting rush, a creeping dune dweller that grows near marshes from B.C. to South America and along the California coast. This would be a good plant to help stabilize sandy soil. In a normal garden it grows up into a basket rush, three feet high, tight with sharp tips. Useful to plant in that narrow strip between you and the lawn of the jerk next door. Tolerates very high salt, but grows fine in most conditions including near full shade. Needs regular water. (Syn. Juncus lesuerii. Munz and Jepson) San Luis Obispo flora by Hoover; Flora of the California Marshes by Mason; Manual of the higher plants of Oregon, Peck; Illustrated Flora of the Pacific States, Abrams and other spell it Juncus leseurii. It breaks the database when I change spelling.

Juncus leseurii tolerates salt and sand.

Juncus leseurii's foliage type is evergreen.
Juncus leseurii's flower color is na.
