More about Big Twister Corckscrew Rush
Big Twister is a unique Juncus grass that sports spiraling, dark green and glossy foliage, resembling giant corkscrews twisting and turning creating a dramatic effect in the garden or in the garden pond. 'Big Twister' is more upright than 'Spiralis', forming 18 inch tall clumps with an equal spread.
Big Twister Juncus grass is easy to grow and maintain in very moist to wet conditions in full sun to part shade. It is an eyecatching accent in the garden pond, container water gardens, or in bog gardens.
If necessary, the foliage can be refreshed yearly by cutting back the old stems in late winter. After doing so, bright, new greenery will emerge in spring. This duplicates what happens naturally in its northern most range, where the frost kills its greenery back to ground level.
