Evergreen groundcover for shade, even quite dry. Slowly spreading, low clumps of broad grassy leaves and tassel-like flowers of golden brown in spring and early summer to 45cm.
This is one of the broader leaved selection of wood rush (not a grass), though not the widest we grow. The wide leaves give an interesting effect and are sometimes mistaken for a bromeliad. Luzula sylvatica 'Mariusz' is ideal for ground cover in shady places, in the wild in deciduous woodland but it is quite at home on the north side of a fence in the garden.
We obtained this from a collector in Holland several years ago but cannot find out it's origin. Poland I guess from the spelling of the name.
