Juncus subnodulosus   Blunt-flowered Rush C DD N

Juncus subnodulosus whole Juncus subnodulosus close

This rush which often grows over 1 metre tall can be confused with Juncus articulatus (Jointed Rush) as it has the transverse septa within the stems which you can feel by running a stem between your finger and thumb. This plant has paler tepals which slightly curve inward s at the end. J. subnodulosus tend to grow in base rich soils where marshy conditions prevail.

Found in much of southern England and central Ireland as well as parts of Wales, this rush is only occasionally found in Scotland.
