Overview

The White Rush is a marginal pond plant that creates a dramatic frame to any water feature. This hardy plant features long, thin, tubular leaves. In their juvenile state, these leaves boast vertical white bands. Oftentimes, these bands grow to nearly the full leaf width to give the appearance of an entirely white stalk. When the bands are not fully developed across the leaf width, they are tinged with a green edge that creates a stark contrast and attractive focal point in your water garden.

This plant matures via dense root clumps that, when left unkempt, create a thickly matted cluster of leaves that protrude from the water's surface. The White Rush is a fairly quick-growing plant and requires regular leaf thinning to maintain its overall white appearance. As leaves mature and darken to a fuller green, simply cut them back to give way to more juvenile leaf development. However, the White Rush is equally as startling when left alone to mature to its fully green state.

As with all clumping root plants, the White Rush's growth tendencies are a benefit to any water gardener. Simply plant in the center of 2 to 5 gallon containers for optimal growth and divide as needed for propagation. For best growth and appearance, plant in the marginal areas of your pond, with water 6" or less. Zones 4 to 11.
