Juncus inflexus 'Blue Arrows' Blue Arrows Rush

Although often grown as a wetland plant, Juncus inflexus is quite drought tolerant once established. Blue Arrows Rush thrives in heat and full sun. It fits perfectly beside a pool, pond, or stream where its reflection captures the mood of an aquatic paradise. Blue Arrows' soft color and beautiful, upright form make it irresistible in container combos and annual beds. In the wild, Juncus inflexus is found in wet soils along streams, ditches, and on wet, sandy and peaty hillsides. This genus is one of our favorites: Juncus are tough, versatile, and evergreen in most climates ' they're versatile plants underused in the trade. Blue Arrows Rush is part of the Fantastic Foliage line.
