Juncus ensifolius (Flying hedgehogs) produces a compact clump of grass-like foliage and flower stems topped with small, darkest brown, spiky seed heads in late Summer.
Top tip: Can be grown on a shelf as a marginal plant if planted in a planting crate with the soil just at the waterline. Otherwise plant directly into reliably wet soil.
Propagation: Divide multiple clumps after flowering and seeds will self- set.
Depth of water over the soil: 0cm
Planting: Plant directly into boggy soil or plant into 5lt planting crate using heavy garden loam or Westland Aquatic Soil and position on a shelf.
