    A beautiful flowering rush that looks great planted in bold swathes at the edges of the pond but will also grow in reliably moist soil in bog and marsh gardens. The upright needle-like foliage will help create vertical interest and throughout the summer tall stems are topped with large cup-shaped clusters of star-shaped white flowers.

  • Garden Care: Divide every couple of years to prevent overcrowding and keep the plants flowering well.
