Description by: The Watershed Nursery
Common rush is a spreading evergreen perennial. The erect pale-green stems grows 2 - 5' tall. Needs moist soils such as along stream edges and meadows. This clumping rush provides food and nesting for birds and other wildlife. Flowers May - August followed by rust colored fruit capsules that persist for into the winter. Native to California and is also found outside of California, but is confined to western North America. A wide range of mammal and avian species depend on Juncus species for food and habitat. The rhizomes form a matrix for many beneficial bacteria, making this plant an excellent addition for wastewater treatment. Native Americans used the leaves to make mats.
