Juncus inflexus 'Afro'

Common name blue Medusa rush; corkscrew rush
Family juncaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z6)
Flowers brown
Size 1-2'
Light sun-shade
Cultural notes marginal aquatic

Curly blue-green grassy clump. The tag said Juncus effusus 'Blue Medusa', a bit of a mixed personality. I think I have the correct ID now. Too bad the original plant died after its first winter. We purchased a similar-looking replacement: Juncus effusus 'Spiralis'. Hopefully it will prove to be longer-lived.

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