Big Twister Rush - Juncus
Juncus effusus 'Big Twister'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 4a-9b  Find Your Zone



Special Attributes

Big Twister is a unique variety of Juncus, commonly called rush, that sports twisted, dark green and glossy evergreen foliage resembling giant corkscrews that create a dramatic effect in consistently moist garden beds or in pots in the garden pond. A very interesting centerpiece or accent in container gardens. The foliage is also nice for cutting and adding to floral arrangements.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a irregular clump with corkscrew like leaves 18 inches tall and wide, Big Twister Rush is ideal for use as an accent in garden beds and pots, planters and gardens. Containers can be submerged in the garden pond with the base of the plant just above the water line. A fine addition to bog and water gardens. 




Cultural Preferences

Big Twister Juncus is easy to grow and maintain in very moist to wet conditions in full sun to part shade. If necessary, the foliage can be refreshed yearly by cutting back the old stems in late winter. After doing so, bright, new greenery will emerge in spring. This duplicates what happens naturally in its northern most range, where the frost kills its greenery back to ground level.
