  1. juncus tenuis

    Juncus tenuis, commonly known as path rush or slender rush, is a perennial flowering plant species from the family Juncaceae. It is native to North America and typically found in moist to wet habitats, including marshes, riverbanks, and damp grasslands. This plant has thin, grass-like leaves and produces small clusters of greenish-brown flowers. It can grow up to 3 feet tall and is often used for erosion control due to its hardy nature and intricate root system.


  1. Juncus tenuis

    Juncus tenuis, the slender rush, is a clump-forming, round-stemmed perennial in the Juncaceae. Slender rush grows to be between 15 and 60 cm tall. Generally considered a weed, it is rarely sold by retailers as a household container plant. Where it is introduced, it is colloquially called path rush, field rush, slender yard rush or wiregrass. The leaves of the plant all come from the base and are not nearly as tall as the stems. The stems are partly covered by sheaths, and have the most distinctive characteristic of the plant on them: clusters or cymes at the top. These cymes consist of branches that have small egg-shaped seed capsules at the end of them. The seeds split into three parts when they become ripe. The plant also spreads via rhizomous root growth.
