Botanical Name
Juncus effusus L. var. solutus Fernald & Wiegand
Common Name
Common Rush, Soft Rush
Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Juncus effusus Linnaeus ssp. solutus (Fernald & Wiegand) Hämet-Ahti
North American plants are often distinguished from European var. effusus as var. solutus Fern.& Wieg. Several other infraspecific taxa have been attributed to Virginia and are worthy of additional study, but only one - var. pylaei (Laharpe) Fern. & Wieg. - is treated here. The current map for J. effusus var. solutus may contain some records for var. pylaei, but no doubt reflects the state-wide distribution of the former.
In a wide range of open and forested wet habitats, natural and disturbed. Common throughout.
