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

  • 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.

  • 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
