Juncus effusus is a versatile rush that can be found growing in a variety of wet habitats and is nearly cosmopolitan in distribution. This clumping plant can grow up to 1.5 meters in height and has smooth, cylindrical stems with light pith filling. The yellowish inflorescence appears to emerge from one side of the stem about 20 cm from the top. The lower leaves are reduced to a brown sheath at the bottom of the stem. The stems of Juncus effusus are used for basket making, thatching, weaving mats, and can even be dried and twisted into ropes for tying. In addition to its uses by humans, soft rush provides habitats for wildfowl, waders, and small mammals. It can also be used as an ornamental plant in water gardens and for habitat restoration projects. However, Juncus effusus can become an invasive species in some areas with moist soil, and methods of controlling it include ploughing, high applications of inorganic fertilizer, and topping to prevent seed formation. This versatile plant is a valuable addition to any wetland or garden area.
