These seeds were collected from Juncus effusus, also known as Soft Rush, Common rush, Lamp rush, and Pacific rush. This ornamental grass likes to live in full sun to light shade where it grows to about a foot high. The Yellow, green, brown, and bronze blossoms are out through the middle of the summer. This is one of the ingredients in Hui sup tea from japan. The stems are used to make baskets, mats, and ropes. Fibers from the stems are used to make paper. Juncus in general are larval host plants for the Coleophora glaucicolella, and Coleophora quadrilineella moths. USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 8.
