Luzula sylvatica

Previous - Next

The Great Wood-rush (Luzula sylvatica) is also a capital plant for filling bare spaces in wood edges. It does not look like a Rush, but like a broad-leaved Grass. The flowers come in May; loose, spreading clusters of brownish bloom that rise a good two feet above the tufts of handsome foliage.
