Juncus tenuis (Path Rush) [50 Seeds]


Germination Information: Please do not order these seeds unless you have experience with sowing seeds that require a natural or artificial chilling period to germinate.

Surface-sow these dust-like seeds in a container in early fall and set them outdoors; they should germinate in spring or summer. If you sow after that, getting germination can more more challenging and may require an artificial warm period (of about a month) followed by a chilling period of about 2 months. Some sources indicate that the seeds may germinate if started in warm conditions , so that may be another option if you wish to experiment.

Note that this information will not be on the seed packet you receive.

Please read the description as well before ordering.

Path rush (Juncus tenuis) is a low-growing perennial usually reaching about 1 foot tall, with slender, bright-green, grass-like foliage, plus greenish flowers in late spring to early or midsummer, maturing to golden brown seedheads in summer. It’s a tough plant and can tolerate compacted soil and occasional foot traffic but is best suited as a groundcover or as lower-level part of a meadow-type planting or rain garden. Path rush is native to much of North America; these seeds are from plants that grow wild in my meadow in Bucks County, PA. Full sun to partial shade; normally grows in moist conditions but is adaptable. Perennial; Zones 3 to 9.

Collected in lateJuly 2023. At least 50 seeds. PA ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
