    Maintenance Notes: 

    Despite a preference for abundant moisture, soft rush will perform surprisingly well in average garden soils as long as they receive consistent irrigation. Clumps are often slow to establish, but once established will spread by creeping rhizomes. Soft rush may be grown in tubs or containers sunk in the mud to control unwanted rhizome spread. Plants will also naturalize by self-seeding. In cold climates, clumps die to the ground in winter. Cut back old foliage in early spring

    • Purchased twice from Home Depot. Appeared healthy initially, but although I followed care instructions in each instance, plant began decline within abt. 6 weeks, dead shortly thereafter.

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • I love how this plant grows. I have it in a barrel pot with Diascia. It is winding its way throughout the flowers and looks fantastic. My plant identifier when I bougjt it says that its a perinnial but hardy only to -15 F. Am I going to be able to transplant in big pot in the fall and ring it inside? My winters get anywjere from -5 to -50.

    • One of the most interesting plants I've ever grown. Very interesting conversation piece. Doesn't require alot of attention and will weather well as long as you keep it covered in the winter. I love mine.

    • I fell in love with this plant at a nursery and had to bring it home. I planted this in a pot since it is not hardy in my area and I wanted to bring it inside for the winter. My plant has done extremely well. My plant is 18-24" already and growing
