Blue Arrows Rush (Juncus inflexus ‘Blue Arrows’) is a classic wetland plant that is fairly tolerant of heat and periodic drought once established. This beloved favorite is one of the most underused garden plants available today.
First, it provides a striking vertical element that is hard to beat. The foliage color is a soft blue-green that plays well with every other color in the garden. It looks great in garden beds whether it is massed, used as a unique edge plant or as a specimen plant amongst low growing groundcovers. But don’t limit it there! Try it as the centerpiece in a favorite container or window box.
Secondly, it doesn’t mind wet spots. It is a perfect fit for pool sides, ponds and stream banks, but it also works well in rain gardens, retention ponds and roadside ditches. Because it can handle tough conditions, Blue Arrows Rush is a great soil stabilizer. Try it on sandy or peaty hillsides.
Don’t miss this versatile and beautiful plant in your home or business landscape. Grouped in threes and fives, this is a real showstopper. Bear in mind that Blue Arrows Rush is slow to start in the spring after you’ve trimmed it back, but once it starts, it will be full in a flash!
