During Winter and some early Spring shipments. Some of the plant materials in this shipment are DORMANT. Which means that even thought they have no green top growth, they will grow from dormant buds when temperatures are right.

A small but impressive rush. Dark green, wire-like foliage grows in a tangle of curious spirals, resembling corkscrews. A warm season, irregular clump forming ornamental grass. Flowers are sparse, emerging from the sides of the foliage. Effective as a single plant in a clay pot or other container, 10-12 inches in diameter. A great pond or bog plant. Prefers very moist to wet conditions in full sun to part shade. Protect in hot climates by providing shallow water 1-6" over the crown. Refresh the foliage yearly by cutting back the old stems in late winter; bright, new greenery will emerge in spring. This duplicates what happens naturally each in its northern most range, where the frost kills its greenery back to ground level.
