This is John Greenlee's name for an unidentified rush, much resembling the typical form of J. effusus, grown by Ed Carman. It is dense and prolific, with shiny, deep green stems growing about 2 feet tall and arching to give a fountainlike effect. Set against these, the bronze flower heads are actually rather ornamental. Sun or shade near the coast, light shade inland, in a wide range of soils with constant moisture. Hardy to 10 degrees F. or less.
