We first saw this amazing rush at the wonderful University of British Columbia Botanic Gardens, and we are thrilled to finally be able to share it with other gardeners. This is obviously a steroidally enhanced version of the smaller corkscrew rushes, but what an enhancement it is! The 18" tall, dark green, heavily spiraled stems make a stunning attention-getting specimen. J. 'Unicorn' grows best in a moist garden site or as a marginal aquatic. Flower arrangers will be thrilled at the possibilities...let's all get kinky!
