‘Big Twister’ is an attractive foliage plant with thick, curly, spiraled green leaves that add an unusual dimension to a patio, garden or home. It is a cultivar of native Juncus effusus, which produces twisty-foliaged cultivars from time to time.
Big, beautiful, thick, round, and smooth describes the fun foliage of Giant Corkscrew Rush. It is taller and more upright than other curly rushes. This spiral rush likes wet or moist soil and can be submerged in up to 4” of water. It will spread slowly by stolons; however, if spreading is a concern, keep it in check by submerging in pots. It’s a great accent for water gardens and can provide plenty of texture and interest to hard-to-landscape wet areas. The plant belongs to Juncus genus that was named and described by Carl von Linnaeus in Species Plantarum in 1753. It can be invasive in warm climates.
