Clumping bog plant with bluish-green springy-spirally leaves. Our previous attempts to grow this in Pennsylvania were mostly unsuccessful: the plants never stuck around for more than a year in the bog of our big pond. Hopefully our new attempt in our Texas pond's bog filter will prove longer-lived.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: waterfall pond
