Most of the really cool contorted plants are woody plants...the perennial world really got cheated. Our chief representative, however is the group of juncus (rushes). Despite your political leanings, corkscrew rush is too cute to ignore. These wonderful evergreens are great additions to any bog garden.

There are actually three different corkscrew rushes. The most common is Juncus effusus 'Spiralis'. This bizarre rush has glossy green stems that coil outward like a twisted unicorn horn to 12" long. From the base of each clump, you could have as many as 30-50 spirals heading in all different directions. This is one of those truly fun plants enjoyed by both kids and adults.
