Planting

The corkscrew rush is an unusual houseplant delivered to you in a pot. If potting up, remember the following: use course peat or at least something that is not too nutritious. Use a wide, shallow dish with holes in the base with a saucer underneath. Add some soil and plant your Juncus effuses ‘Spiralis’ at the correct height and fill up. Press lightly down and water the corkscrew rush generously right away. Stand it on its saucer in a warm and sunny spot, protected from the midday sun. The saucer should have water in it throughout the growing season.

Care

The corkscrew rush is not a lover of chalky soil and will better appreciate being watered with rain water – into the saucer and not on the plant. Keep it pretty moist because Juncus effusus ‘Spiralis’ is originally a marsh resident. Water may stand in the saucer or planter at all times. It should require no feeding. Allow it to grow somewhat dryer over the winter and stand in a cooler spot – it may then lose some leaves but will shoot up again in the spring.

Juncus effuses ‘Spiralis’ in the garden

Juncus effuses ‘Spiralis’ will thrive in the garden too – give it a marshy spot. Plant it out before mid-October preferably, to allow it to acclimatise before the winter. It is a hardy plant that will die off above ground but will produce new twisted stems come the spring.

Extra

Juncus has typical small flowers that are characteristic together with the unusual looking twisted stems of this plant genus of rushes (Juncus).

Juncus is a grass so classified as Poaceae.

Juncus effusus ‘Spiralis’ / Juncus effuses f. spiralis (subtle difference) is the name this plant is more often known by, but it has recently been renamed Juncus decipiens subsp. decipiens which is also known under the German name of ‘Liebeslocken’.
