Grass Leaved Rush


Juncus marginatus

The Grass-leaved Rush (Juncus marginatus) is found in moist sandy places. The stem, seldom more than two feet tall, is erect and somewhat flattened, and, as the common name indicates, the leaves are long, flat, and grasslike.

The inflorescence is composed of three to twenty small, brownish green heads of flowers. There are but three stamens and the anthers are reddish brown in colour.
