(Common Rush, Spiral Common Rush)

The crazy, curly foliage of corkscrew rush will add interest and fun to any water or bog garden. Hardy and tough, it is an evergreen to semi-evergreen perennial. It naturally inhabits calm, shallow waterways and ditches and tolerates both fresh and salt water. Its clump-forming habit makes it amenable to water gardens and containers.

Corkscrew rush forms clumps of wiry, round, corkscrew-like blades that curl themselves into a green tangle. The lustrous blades produces small tufted brown flowers...

(Snowy Woodrush)

Pretty, chives-like white flowers top the grass-like foliage of snowy woodrush in early and midsummer. An evergreen, tufted perennial from southern Europe, it is fast growing but only slowly spreads its underground stems (rhizomes).

The grassy leaves are thin, flat, grooved and rise in tufted basal clumps. On the leaf edges are tiny, criss-crossing white hairs. In summer, tall stems rise above the clump of foliage and display loose clusters of many small, shiny white flowers. The overall visual...

(Snowy Woodrush)

Pretty, chives-like white flowers top the white hair-edged, grass-like foliage of Lucius snowy woodrush in early and midsummer. An evergreen, tufted perennial from the mountains of southern Europe, it is fast growing but only slowly spreads its underground stems (rhizomes).

The grassy leaves are thin, flat and grooved and rise in tufted basal clumps. On the leaf edges are tiny, criss-crossing white hairs tha make the leaf blade look strongly edged in a band of white. In summer, tall stem rise...

(Dwarf Bamboo, Running Bamboo)

Fernleaf bamboo is a ground-hugging species that produces a useful, dense groundcover for Asian-inspired gardens. It is native to Japan and China where it is found in woodland edges, indicating a preference for protected semi-shaded locations. The thick, rather stiff leaves are arranged on stems in a tight chevron, created by super-short internodes and giving it a resemblance to a palm or a fern frond. There is no record of the species flowering in cultivation.

This groundcover bamboo is so compact...

(Dwarf Whitestripe Bamboo, Running Bamboo)

Short, groundcover bamboos are highly versatile in the garden, but when you add a white stripe to the leaves, as this species does, the value doubles. This species is found in woodland edges of forests in China and Japan, indicatings its preference for acidic soils and a good deal of shade. Many other variegated bamboos are unreliably striped but this one’s snow-white stripe is more consistent. The root system of this species is compact, offering very little potential for invasiveness, a welcome...

(Dwarf Greenstripe Bamboo, Running Bamboo)

Wherever this bright bamboo grows, it literally jumps out of its surroundings to become the focal point of the garden. Many consider it the first and finest of all yellow stripe bamboos. It is a knee to thigh-tall species found at woodland edges of Japan and China illustrating a preference for moist forest floor conditions and moderate exposure. The leaves bear a strong yellow or chartreuse coloring with dark green pin stripes for a bold look. Occasionally an all yellow cane may appear. Clums emerge...

(Softstem Bulrush)

This softstem bulrush is among the most common plants of American wetlands. It is native to all of temperate North America, growing in the shallows along the margins of lakes, rivers and streams. This plant is typically partly or wholly submerged and grows in massive colonies that help protect against shore erosion and offer high-quality habitat for wildlife. Bulrush grows as an olive-green round stem about the diameter of a human thumb that can grow to overhead height at maturity. It has small sheath-like...

(Red Hook Sedge)

Grassy evergreen clumps of shiny maroon leaves on short stems make this New Zealand native a dramatic presence in the garden. The slowly expanding, calf-high tussock of strap-shaped leaves gives rise in summer to clusters of brown flowers followed by attractive black seedheads. The greenish red to maroon stems are triangular in cross section.

Grow this tender sedge relative in full to part sun and damp rich soil. It sulks in dry conditions. It may self-sow modestly. Combine this colorful plant...
