Toad Rush

Juncus bufonius

The herbarium specimen photo shows a tufted annual sedge with cylindrical seed stems up to 20 cm long with diameter about 0.4-1.0 mm diam.

Leaves grow from the base and are shorter than seed stems and maybe flat or slightly chanelled; 0.2-0.2 mm wide; sheath pale yellow to occasionally red-brown.

Flowers form at end of the stem and often form a much longer structure than rest of the stem.
