Luzula

Wood Rush

Luzula comes from the Latin word meaning “glow worm.” These graceful rushes earn their name for the way a soft, downy hair, which covers the margins of each blade, catches and holds dew. As the morning light strikes the moistened leaves, they glisten. The handsome leafage vitalizes a garden setting with its textural infill.

Durable as a ground cover and at home in various soil types, Luzula is best when planted in drifts.


Luzula ‘Ruby Stiletto’  full sun

An eye catching new selection from seed collected in the mountains of British Columbia by plantsman Graham Ware, ‘Ruby Stiletto’ lives up to its name during the colder months when sumptuous ruby hues emblazon its blades. A compact hummock of spry and slender grassy green foliage in the warm seasons, this gem weaves an engaging, textural tapestry when planted en masse with drifts of Deschampsia ‘Goldgehänge’ and Molinia ‘Moorflamme’.

Size: 12" high x 8" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Luzula sylvatica ‘Auslese’  partial shade
Greater Wood Rush

This light green ground cover is perhaps one of the best ornamental grasses for a shady setting, especially beneath woody, deciduous shrubs. Arising from soft-looking broad foliar ribbons with twisted and downward curving tips, erect 15 in. stems hold golden inflorescences that mature handsomely to a chocolate brown. Evergreen ‘Auslese’ can tolerate some drought, and assures a blithe presence as it skirts below Sambucus ‘Black Beauty’.

Blooms mid-April–May.

Size: 12" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 5.
