Common Rush

{Perennial, densely tufted rush, very common on stream banks and other moist places. Occurs naturally throughout Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
Juncus means basket binder, usitatus means ordinary.
It is an important locally native plant right on the waters edge, where lots of weeds can take hold. A good species for stabilisation of banks of waterways.}
